Thomas A. Linton

1853                146 Main Street, Richmond, Virginia.

Thomas A. Linton was recorded in an advertisement that ran from October 8 to 21, 1853 in The Daily Dispatch (Richmond, Virginia).  Still They Come—The subscribers take pleasure in calling the attention of the public to their superior style of flesh colored Daguerreotypes.  They are not only approved by all who see them, but all are anxious to obtain a copy of themselves, relatives or friends.  The demand is great, and still increasing, and while the weather is good we would say, come one, come all—our prices are moderate, and pictures superb.  Satisfaction shall be given or no charge will be made.

While we do not say that our pictures are the best in the world, we do say that they are superior to some, and inferior to none—as the throng of customers who visit our gallery can testify.

Call and examine the beautiful work of art, whether you wish pictures or not, at No. 146 Main street, a few doors below the Exchange Bank.  Minnis & Watson.

I would be pleased to have my friends call upon me at M. & W.’s gallery, Thos. A. Linton, Assistant.

Thomas A. Linton is not listed in other photographic directories.
