1856                308 N. 2nd, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Newcome was mentioned 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.

Newcome. —Here we have an excellent artist again; one whose pictures please, possessing all the attributes of good pictures. In the course of time, this artist bids fair to be among the first. There is not a picture in his gallery which does not excel. How different from many of his neighbors. I noticed several splendid positives, among which a portrait of a child taken after death is really well done. This artist should go into Chestnut or Arch Street, to be appreciated.

Newcome is recorded in other photographic directories, but is recorded here because of the first- hand account of his or her work.

[1] Not all first names or complete addresses were recorded in article.   Craig’s Daguerreian Registry was used to assist in identification when possible first name and address were added.
