1856 16 Harrington Corner, opposite the City Hall, Worcester, Massachusetts.
Maxham & Tapley (Benjamin D. Maxham & Charles E. Tapley) were recorded in one advertisement that ran from June 19 to September 13, 1856 in the Worcester Daily Spy (Worcester, Massachusetts). Special Notices. B. D. Maxham Would respectfully invite all those wishing superior Daguerreotypes of themselves or friends, to call at his old stand, where they can procure likenesses taken by himself or Mr. Tapley, an old and experienced operator from the City of New York. No 12½ or 25 cent pictures will be taken by them—their time and talent will be devoted to their profession, which they wish to make honorable, by giving good pictures at reasonable prices to all who may favor them with their patronage.
Ladies and gentlemen, please call at No. 16 Harrington Corner, opposite the City Hall, and examine specimens. B. D. Maxham, C. E. Tapley.
Both Maxham and Tapley are recorded in other photographic directories but not as partners.
