1857 Address Unknown, Westfield, New York.
Messrs. Palmer, Bartholomew & Co. were listed in an announcement in the Westfield Republican (Westfield, New York) on October 7, 1857. Agricultural Society Report…Painting &c….
In the Daguerreotype Department, there were several exhibitions deserving of more than a Passing notice from your Committee, but as the scale of premiums have been limited, we are reluctantly compelled to contain ourselves to the following;
Best specimens of Daguerreotypes, called Melainotypes, to No. 162, O. Monroe, Dunkirk; 2d do. No. 158.
The committee would respectfully recommend a premium of the 2d class to. No. 316 G. R. Martin, being four Photographs in oil.
There were on exhibition three Ambrotypes without numbers from Messrs. Palmer, Bartholomew & Co. Westfield, deserving much credit for their perfection and life-like expression of the specimens presented for inspection.
Palmer and Bartholomew are not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Westfield, New York. Craig’s Daguerreian Registry does list a Charles G. Bartholomew in Ithaca, New York from 1849 to 1854 and Auburn, New York from 1854-1860. It is possible that they are the same person but it is only speculation at this time.
