North & James

North & James (William C. North & possibly George W. James) were recorded in one announcement that appeared on October 14, 1846 in the Daily Republican (Springfield, Massachusetts).  Reports and Premiums, Made and awarded by the Hampden Agricultural Society, at its third Exhibition, Exhibition in Springfield, Oct. 7 and 8, 1846.

…The Committee were pleased to see in the exhibition so many good Daguerreotype miniatures.  Beautiful pictures were exhibited, executed both by Mr. North, now Messrs. North & James, also by Mr. Cooley.  We saw no difference in the pictures as regards merit.  Were we to make our choice, one would be as acceptable as the other.  Much praise we think is due them both for their truthful likenesses.  Respectfully submitted, W. S. Elwell, Chairman.

North & James are not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Springfield Massachusetts.
