F H. Robinson

1847                Rooms over O. H. Salisbury’s Dry Good Store, McGrawville, New York.

F H. Robinson was recorded in one advertisement and one announcement in the McGrawville Express (McGrawville, New York).  The advertisement ran from to September 9 to October 7, 1847.  Premium Colored Daguerreotypes.  Mr. F. H. Robinson would respectfully inform the Ladies and Gentlemen of this place and vicinity, that he is fitting up a room over O. H. Salisbury’s dry good store where he will be prepared to take Daguerreotype Likenesses, on the latest and most approved style, with or without colors, well put up in the best Morocco Cases, and warranted not to fade or change by age.  He has within a few weeks made some valuable improvements in the art, which very much beautify these Pictures.

Rooms open for the reception of visitors next Monday, September 13th.

Ladies and Gentlemen are invited to call and examine specimens.  Rooms open from 8 to 5 clear or cloudy.

N. B.—Instructions given in the art, with the latest improvements.  Instruments and stock and the choicest kinds of chemicals that are used in the art furnished on reasonable terms.

The announcement appeared on September 23, 1847.  We hope our friends will not forget that Mr. F. H. Robinson, is in town taking Daguerreotype Likenesses.  Mr. R. is very successful in this art, and his specimens are beautiful and life-like.  As he intends leaving town soon, those intending to get their faces taken off, had better call soon or they will lose their chance.

F. H. Robinson is not listed in other photographic directories.
