1856                Address Unknown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Martson (possibly Joseph Marston) was recorded on April 1,1856 in the Photographic and fine Arts Journal (New York, New York).  In an article entitled the Photographic Galleries of America.  Number Two, Philadelphia. The author visited 57 Galleries in Philadelphia.  Martson. — A really tip-top artist. His daguerreotypes surpass. His Ambrotypes are excellent, as also his retouched photographs. This artist has three galleries in the city. I saw some really fine positive photographs, which might place him among the first.

Joseph Marston is recorded in other photographic directories but is included here because of the first-hand account of his work.
