1853 Corner Grove & Congress Streets, Lansingburgh, New York. 1854 Address Unknown, Union Village, New York.
G. W. & N. C. Pine were recorded in two announcements in the Lansingburgh Democrat (Lansingburgh, New York) and two advertisements in the Washington County People’s Journal (Union Village, New York). The first announcement appeared on July 14, 1853. “True to life!” “The most natural I ever saw!” “They are decidedly the best I have yet seen in Lansingburgh!” Such are some of the expressions that may be heard daily from persons who have paid Pine’s Mammoth Daguerrean Saloon, corner of Grove and Congress streets, a visit. It seems to be a fixed fact that Pine is at the head of his profession, equal in rank to the best artists of the present day.
The second announcement appeared on July 28, 1853. Never were there finer Daguerreotypes executed in the world than those daily produced by our friends, the Pines at their Mammoth Saloon, on the corner of Congress and Grove streets.—Rain or shine, they are always in readiness to wait on their friends, and “secure the shadow ere the substance fade,” with true Yankee genius. The reason they meet with such great and unprecedented success is, they are among the first artists in the country, are affable in their manners, and will allow no one to leave with poor pictures.
The first advertisement ran from September 21 to October 12, 1854.
Wait, For The wagon! Daguerreotypes, neat and fine, Daguerreotypes, rain or shine, Daguerreotypes—by Messrs. Pine,
At their mammoth Daguerreotype Car, which will be in Union-Village about the 27th of September, and remain in the place for a few days only.
Improvements in Daguerreotypes. Messrs. Pine take Miniatures with the New Crystal Back Ground, which greatly increases their beauty and permanence.
Please call and examine specimens. G. W. & N. C. Pine. Sept. 19, 1854.
The second advertisement ran from October 19 to November 30, 1854. Ho! For The Wagon! Pine Has Come! Daguerreotyping in all its varieties, at Pine’s mammoth Car, which will remain in Union-Village for a short time. Please call and examine specimens.
G. W & N.C. Pine are not recorded in other photographic directories.
