Mr. Griffin

1856                Rooms at Barksdale & McFarland’s, Yazoo City, Mississippi.

Mr. Griffin was recorded in one announcement and one advertisement in The Weekly American Banner (Yazoo City, Mississippi).  It will be seen by an advertisement, that Mr. Griffin, a most excellent Daguerrean Artist, has opened rooms in our city.  Those that wish to see themselves as others see them, can be gratified by a visit to them.  N.B.—Mr. Griffin inform us that he makes all the ladies handsome.

The advertisement ran from February 15 to 29, 1856.  Daguerreotypes For Only One Dollar At Griffin’s Gallery, Opposite Barksdale & McFarland’s.  A Large lot of extra fine cases, Gold Lockets, Bracelets, Breastpins and Rings for Daguerreotypes on hand, and for sale at reduced prices.

Many beautiful specimens of distinguished personages can be seen.  Call and examine them, one and all.  You that have beauty should go to Griffin take it, You that have none should go and let him make it.  Ere decay’s effacing fingers, Have sought the lives where beauty lingers.

Mr. Griffin is not recorded in other photographic directories.
