Joseph C. Law was recorded in an announcement that ran on May 25, 1853 as being associated with the firm of Miller, McClelland & McEachran in The New York Herald (New York, New York).  Communicated.—Mr. Editor, In Paying A Visit to the Crystal Palace a few days since, we excepted an invitation to examine the mammoth daguerrean saloon of Messrs. Miller, McClelland & McEachran, located on the Sixth avenue, immediately opposite the Crystal Palace.  The whole interior, the magnificence, an entire arrangements for the transfer of absolute humanity upon perfect, durable, and life resembling reflections, are such as cannot but inspire every visitor and patron with unhesitating confidence and satisfaction.  The visiting community will not wonder at this, when they are apprised of the fact that the whole operating department is under the immediate supervision of Prof. J. C. Law, whose artistic talent and thorough knowledge of the daguerrean art is not only proverbial among artisans of celebrity, but admitted by the general public.  The above named establishment, with its elegant apartments, important modern improvements and close proximity to the Palace for exhibiting the industry of the world, must command the presence of visitors, whose patronage will be an unavoidable consequence.  We must not omit to say, that the very gentlemanly bearing of all connected with the establishment, besides warranting well executed and perfect pictures, at once entitled them to the cordial support of all classes.  Every facility, we learn, will be in readiness to take the daguerreotypes of distinguished visitors of our own and foreign countries, during the approaching exhibition.  Call, see, and admire.  Visitors.

Joseph C. Law is recorded in other photographic directories, but is included here because of the new information.
