D. McEwen

1850                Rooms over Gordon’s Law Office, opposite the Court House, Delhi, New York.

D. McEwen was recorded in an advertisement that ran from May 8 to 29, 1850 in the Delaware Gazette (Delhi, New York). Daguerreotypes. The subscriber would respectfully announce to the citizens of Delhi vicinity, that he has opened a room “for a few weeks only,” over Gordon’s Law office, opposite the Court House, where he is prepared to make Daguerreotypes in the most approved style, singly or in groups.

Having pursued the business over four years, he is confident he can please the most fastidious.  He does not design to humbug the public by telling them of some “late London, or Chemical process,” but he expects to command patronage only by his skill and experience in the art.

Paintings, Daguerreotypes, &c., accurately copied.  Pictures inserted in Lockets, Breastpins, &c.  Sick or deceased persons waited upon at their residence. Prices for a single picture, $1.50 and upwards.  A reasonable deduction made for families.  Satisfaction given or no sale.  Instructions given and apparatus furnished. Ladies and Gentlemen are respectfully invited to call and examine specimens.  D. McEwen.

D. McEwen is not recorded in other photographic directories.
