Hunter & Lea

1857                Rooms on First Street, opposite the Post Office, Glasgow, Missouri.

Hunter & Lea were recorded in an announcement dated  September 17, 1857 in the Glasgow Weekly Times (Glasgow, Missouri).  Ambrotypes, Melainotypes and Photographs.  Messrs. Hunter & Lea have taken rooms on first street, opposite the Post Office, where they are prepared to accommodate all who may need their services.—They will take pictures of any size, either on Glass, Isingglass, Paper or Sheet Iron, put them up in handsome cases, rings, lockets or breast-pins, and at a price from $1.50 up, according to size and case.  Families taken at a reduction on regular prices.  They have a large number of specimens, of their own work, which show them to be masters of their art, which is more than can be said of every one who travels around, rendering hideous the “human face divine.”  Give them a call—examine their work—and if you want a picture you will be at the right place to get it.

 

Hunter & Lea are not recorded in other photographic directories.
