J. Nicholson

1848                Rooms upper story of Mr. Carey’s new house, Fayette, Missouri.

J. Nicholson was recorded in one advertisement that ran from April 22 to 29, 1848 In the Boon Lick Times (Fayette, Missouri). Daguerreotype Miniatures. Secure the shadow ere the substance fade; Let nature copy that which nature made.

J. Nicholson would inform the ladies and Gentlemen of this place and the surrounding country, that he has taken the large and spacious upper room of Mr. Carey’s new house, and will commence operation this day—Saturday, 22d.

From long experience in the business, he flatters himself he will be able to furnish those wishing it an Exact Likeness, beautifully colored.

Surpassed by none, and equaled but by few.  That is my motto: and my pictures prove it true.  Persons wishing to see specimens of this wonderful Art, brought to Perfection, are invited to call at his rooms and judge for themselves.

Owing to my style of operating, I can take pictures in rainy or cloudy weather.  My pictures are warranted never to fade or lose the beauty of their expression.

Invalids waited on at their residences.  Daguerreotype Miniatures copied as large as the original.  Portraits copied.  Landscapes and views of buildings taken.

J. Nicholson is not recorded in other photographic directories.
