1856                Bowery, New York, New York.[1]

Hunt was recorded  on January 1, 1856 in the Photographic and fine Arts Journal (New York, New York) In an article entitled the Photographic Galleries of America.  Number One, New York. The author visited 69 Galleries in New York City.

Hunt’s, Bowery—This artist seems thoroughly to understand that when a silver plate is coated with dry iodine, exposed to an accelerator and then transferred to the camera, that a shadow of a person placed before it will be impressed upon the plate. May such knowledge meet with its reward.

Hunt is not recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry and is included here because of the first-hand account of his work.  Cornelius D. Hunt also on Bowery, is also recorded in this article so the possibility of this being him is slim.

[1] Not all first names or complete addresses were recorded in article.   Craig’s Daguerreian Registry was used to assist in identification when possible first name and address were added.  Possibly Caleb Hunt but john does not list him at this address.
