Ising, Arch St.—Some pretty fair photographs and daguerreotypes. The great defect is want of softness in the photographs especially, the daguerreotypes are better in this respect, but are wanting in sharpness.
Charles M. Ising is recorded in other photographic directories, but is recorded here because of the first-hand account of his work.
 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.
