Hughes & Wilkinson

1859                Rooms over Wilkinson & Co.’s. Jewelry Store, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Hughes & Wilkinson were recorded in an announcement that appeared on September 6, 1859 in   The Western Democrat (Charlotte, North Carolina).  Hughes & Wilkinson’s Photograph and Ambrotype Gallery, over Wilkinson & Co.’s. jewelry store, is something a little nicer than Charlotte has been treated to yet.  Those who wish to be “taken” should call immediately.  The pictures are life-like, and are worth going to see, especially the one on the mantel-piece.

Hughes & Wilkinson are not listed in other photographic directories.  Hughes is possibly William P. Hughes who is listed in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry, but not listed in Charlotte in 1859.
