P. Persac

1854                Boat at the Landing, Plaquemine, Louisiana.

P. Persac appeared in one advertisement in the Southern Sentinel (Plaquemine, Louisiana) that ran on October 21, 1854.  “Secure the Shadow Ere the Substance Fades.”  P. Persac, Would respectfully announce to the citizens of Plaquemine and vicinity, that he has a Flat Boat, for a short time at the Landing where he is prepared to take daguerreotype Portraits.   In all weather, in a few seconds of time.  Life-like portraits single or in groups.  Daguerreotypes at the residence of the sick or deceased.  Oil Paintings, Drawings, Daguerreotypes, &c. copied.  Public Buildings, private edifices, &c. &c.

A good assortment of plain and fancy cases always on hand.  No person will be required to take Pictures unless perfectly satisfied.  Strangers and citizens are invited to call and examine specimens. His long and successful practice in the business, with the very superior light, enables him to compete with the best artist of the age.  Hours for operating, from 8 A. M. until 4 P. M.

P. Persac is not recorded in other photographic directories.
