M. Robeson

1852                Address Unknown, Address Unknown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

M. Robeson was recorded in one advertisement that appeared on January 30, 1852 in The New York Herald (New York, New York).  To Daguerreotypists.—Wanted An Experienced and steady operator.  To one fully competent, a permanent situation is offered.  Address M. Robeson, Daguerreotypist, Philadelphia, Post Office.  (post paid), stating particulars and amount of wages required, to receive attention.

M. Robeson is not recorded in other photographic directories.  In reviewing A Director of Pennsylvania Photographers 1839-1900 and Craig’s Daguerreian Registry the name Martin Roberts appears at Hutchinson Street, below Master Street.  It is possible they are the same person and that Robeson is a printers typo.
