Hunt, Mr.

1853                Rooms in the McCook Building, Carrollton, Ohio.                                                  1855                Rooms in the Stidger Hall, Up Stairs, Carrollton, Ohio.

Mr. Hunt was recorded in three announcements in The Carroll Free Press (Carrollton, Ohio).  The first announcement appeared on August 4, 1853.  Mr. Hunt, the Daguerreotypist, is in town, taking pictures.  His rooms are in the McCook building, next door to Dr. Boegels Drug-store, If you want something good looking call on Mr. Hunt, and have your picture taken.

The second announcement appeared on August 11, 1853.  We call the attention of our readers, last week, to the fact that Mr. Hunt was taking Daguerreotype pictures in our town. We would again say Mr. Hunt is on hand, and driving a smashing trade in his line.  Every one wants a Good picture and True, would do well to give him a call.  His rooms are above Boegels Drug-Store.

The third announcement appeared on September 20, 1855.  Mr. Hunt, who is stopping here for a time, has opened rooms in the ‘Stidger Hall,’ where he is prepared to take Daguerreotype likenesses in the most approved style.  Mr. Hunt is known to our community as a good artist; and will be happy to receive a call from our citizens.  Rooms up stairs.

Mr. Hunt is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Carrollton, Ohio. It is possible that this is Caleb Hunt, but more research is needed.
