C. A. Johnston

1856                [8th Street and Louisiana Avenue, Washington, D. C.]

C. A. Johnston was recorded in two announcements. The first appeared on July 30, 1856 in the Daily American Organ (Washington, District of Columbia). Mr. Walker presented the petition of C. A. Johnston, asking permission to locate a travelling daguerreotype wagon at the corner of 8th street and Louisiana avenue; which was referred to the Committee on Police.

The second announcement appeared on July 31, 1856 in the Evening Star (Washington, D. C.)  Mr. Walker presented the petition of C. A. Johnston, asking permission to locate a travelling daguerreotype wagon at the corner of eighth street and Louisiana avenue; which was referred.

C. A. Johnston does not appear in other photographic directories. There is a possibility that C. A. Johnston is Mr. Johnson a daguerrean in Richmond, Virginia with traveling daguerreotype wagons (entry posted on 9-4-19.) There is no indication that the petition was approved.
