1857 Rooms over Becker’s Store, Valatie, New York.
J. T. Nichols was mentioned in an advertisement that appeared on October 22, 1857 in the Kinderhook Herald (Kinderhook, New York). Pictures for the Million!! The Ladies and Gentlemen of Valatie, Kinderhook and vicinity, are informed the subscriber has leased and refitted the Ambrotyping rooms lately occupied by J. T. Nichols, over Becker’s Store in Valatie.
These rooms are large, and especially fitted for Picture making in all branches. Our facilities are such now that we can make Ambrotypes, daguerreotypes, Melainotypes or Photographs on paper. Cases of all qualities and sizes at prices from 25 cents to 15 dollars.
Patronage solicited, and all work warranted to be as good as can be had elsewhere. W. E. Geer, Valatie, Oct. 22, 1857.
J. T. Nichols is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Valatie, New York. Craig’s Daguerreian Registry does list a John T. Nichols as being active in 1860 in New York City, but it is unknown if they are the same person.
