William Gustin

1856                Address and Location Unknown.                                                                        1857                Address Unknown, Troy, Pennsylvania.

William Gustin was recorded in two announcements in the Bradford Report (Towanda, Pennsylvania).  The first appeared on October 16, 1856.  Premiums Awarded at the Fourth Annual Fair of the Bradford County Agricultural Society, October 2, 1856…2d premium for Ambrotypes to Wm. Gustin.

The second announcement appeared on October 29, 1857.  Teachers’ Institute at Troy…The names of more than ninety teachers were registered the first under the direction of the principal. While thus collected into as compact a group as possible, Mr. Gustin, an artist of Troy, succeeded in getting two very fine Ambrotypes of the group.  So perfect were the shadows thus fastened upon the glass plates, that an individual who was previously acquainted with any or all of the one hundred and forty or fifty faces upon the plate, could recognize them instantly.  The whole group is seen standing except the County Superintendent who appears in front seated in an arm chair.

William Gustin is not recorded in other photographic directories.
