J. Kinney Rishel

1859                Rooms in the Exchange Block, a few doors above the Hotel, Bloomsburg,                                      Pennsylvania.

J. Kinney Rishel was recorded in one announcement that appeared on August 17, 1859 in The Star of the North (Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania).  Pictures Unparalleled—Our estimable young friend, J. Kinney Rishel, successor of Joseph Huckle, is amply prepared to execute work in his branch in such a manner as to compare favorably with any work done in the cities.  His room is in the Exchange Block, a few doors above the hotel.  His prices are moderate; thus affording all an opportunity of having a likeness taken of him or herself.  His facilities are such as to enable him to execute Ambrotypes, Melainotypes, Niellographs in the best style of the art.  Attend to this matter, friends, while an opportunity is offered you: tomorrow it may be too late!

When death the soul from body once has torn,                                                                                        No artist’s hand can trace the living form.

J. Kinney Rishel is not listed in other photographic directories.
