G. H. Johnson

1847                Rooms over Dr. Fitch’s Office, Delhi, New York.

G. H. Johnson was recorded in an advertisement that ran from August 18 to September 8, 1847 in the Delaware Gazette (Delhi, New York).  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  G. H. Johnson having opened a room over Dr. Fitch’s office, (where he will remain for a short time.)  is now prepared to take likenesses, and will warrant perfect satisfaction to all who may favor him with a sitting.  Likeness taken of children from miniatures and portraits.  Instructions given in the art on research reasonable terms.

G. H. Johnson is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Delhi, New York. In Craig’s Daguerreian Registry John list a George H. Johnson as being active in New York city prior to arriving in San Francisco in 1849. This is possibly the same person but without further research this is just speculation.
