C. B. Howard

1855                Address Unknown, Reading, Pennsylvania.

C. B. Howard was recorded in an announcement for Lewis Overpeck on July 13, 1855 in the Lewisburg Chronicle (Lewisburg, Pennsylvania). New Establishment! Lewis Overpeck would respectfully inform the citizens of Lewisburg and vicinity that he has opened rooms at the Union Temperance Hotel, where he is prepared to take Daguerreotype Likenesses in the most improved and life-like manner, and put up in cases varying in price from 50 cts. to $5.  He invites the public to call and try his work, feeling assured that they will be pleased with his workmanship.  Having had superior facilities for instructions in the art, (of J. P. Leisenring, Danville, and C. B. Howard, Reading,) he thinks himself as well perfected in the art as any in this or any other State.

C. B. Howard and Lewis Overpeck are not listed in other photographic directories. J. P. Leisenring is recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry as being active in Danville, Pennsylvania in 1854.
