A. Nye is not listed in other photographic directories as being active in Boston, Massachusetts in 1847.  It is possible that this is Alexander Gibbs Nye who was first active prior to 1844 in Plymouth, Massachusetts and in 1844 in Boston and in 1853 in Weymouth.  It is possible while in Boston in 1847 he is selling his apparatus and not actively practicing photography.  See Alexander Gibbs Nye in tomorrows post.
