1854                Rooms at Dr. J. L. Dye’s, Woodsfield, Ohio.

G. W. Murphy was recorded in an announcement and an advertisement in The Spirit of Democracy (Woodsfield, Ohio).  The announcement appeared on March 8, 1854.  Daguerreotypes.—Mr. G. W. Murphy has taken rooms at Dr. J. L. Dye’s, and is prepared to take likenesses for all those who may desire them.  Give them a call.

The advertisement ran from March 22 to May 3, 1854.  Daguerreotype Likenesses!  For $1.50 Only!  G. W. Murphy would respectfully inform the citizens of Woodsfield and vicinity, that he has taken rooms at Dr. J. L. Dye’s, where he will be happy to see all who desire Correct Miniatures, of themselves or friends, according to the latest improvements in the Daguerrean art, in a style superior to any that have been taken in the=is place heretofore.  Also, particular attention will be given to taking copies of Portraits, Paintings, Pictures, &c.

“Secure the shadow ere the Substance fade,” and it will never change it rightly taken, but remain a true and faithful semblance of the original.  Any person sitting for a portrait, will not be expected to take it, unless they and their friends think it correct and satisfactory.  Call and see specimens.
