L. M. Hoadley

1844                Between Chicopee Bank and Exchange Hotel, Springfield, Massachusetts.        1844                3d story of Byers’ building, Elm Street, over Post Office, Springfield,                                                  Massachusetts.

L. M. Hoadley is recorded in two announcements and two advertisements in the Daily Republican (Springfield, Massachusetts). The first advertisement ran from April 20 to May 20, 1844. Daguerreotype Miniatures.  L. M. Hoadley, who is aquainted with all the latest improvements in this interesting art, is prepared to furnish Miniatures, and copies of paintings, in a style not to be surpassed.  Miniatures taken by this new process, have none of that death like appearance which has hitherto been the objection to Daguerreotype miniatures, as they are taken without the direct rays of the sun upon the face, rendered permanent upon the plate.  Correct likenesses guaranteed.  Price from two to two and a half dollars.

Please call and examine specimens at his room in the 3d story of Byers’ building, Main Street;—entrance between the Chicopee Bank and Exchange Hotel.

The first announcement appeared on  May 6, 1844.  Daguerreotype Portrait.—We would refer those who wish to get Miniatures of themselves or friends to the advertisement of Mr. Hoadley, in another column, who takes likenesses by the Daguerreotype process.—We have examined some of his specimens and think them the best we ever saw by this new remarkable art.  For a trifling sum a person may get an indelible and correct likeness, without any flattery, ad in a very few minutes of time.  We would recommend Mr. Hoadley, as a person who understands his business, and accomplishes all he undertakes.

The second announcement appeared on May 17, 1844.  Mr. Hoadley has removed his Daguerreotype business to the rooms in the 3d story over the Post Office, in Elm-street
