Professor Loud — This artist is determined not to lose customers by being silent. A small label is attached to each of his pictures stating the peculiar value of each. His ivory stereoscopic pictures are pretty fair, as also some of his ambrotypes. Professor Loud seems to doubt the correctness of the term ambrotype by the following label; “Glass picture, by some called Ambrotype.” Professor Loud is also a poet, as the following will show :
Ambrotype — Of the sweet forms we cherish Secure this kind of picture E’re the substance perish.
The advertisement appeared on June 13, 1858 in The New York Herald (New York, New York). Photographic Artist Read.—Louds’ Improved white varnish will preserve your negatives, melainotypes and ambrotypes. Call and get a bottle to try. Price only 38 cents for six ounce bottle.
