John Liewer

1857                Rooms opposite the Post Office, over Sulzbacher’s Store, Glasgow, Missouri.

John Liewer was recorded in an advertisement on March 26, 1857 in the Glasgow Weekly Times  (Glasgow, Missouri).  Ambrotypes.  Mr. John Liewer & Co., are prepared to take any description of the above beautiful style of Pictures, and will be happy to see those who may need their services.  The Ambrotype is a Positive Picture on Glass.  It possesses a softness, rotundity, a commingling of light and shade, a distinctness and delicacy of tone, which the old Daguerreotype has never attained.  It can be viewed with all the ease and distinctness of an Engraving; but above all, is bound to last as long as the Glass itself.  Rooms opposite the Post Office, over Sulzbacher’s Store.

John Liewer is not recorded in other photographic directories.
