1848                Main Street, over Dunham & Bates Store, Springfield, Massachusetts

Robinson was recorded in one advertisement that ran from August 19 to 25, 1848 in the Daily Republican (Springfield, Massachusetts).  A Rare Chance!  Superb Colored Daguerreotypes At Half Price And No Mistake!

Robinson’s Depot Gallery, over Dunham & Bates store South of the Rail Road, Main Street.

The proprietor, Daguerrian artist from New York, having recently arranged to go south (on other business) will close out his stock of superior Plates and Cases by making for those who desire his superb style of Likenesses, colored or plain, at half the usual prices; some 8 or 10 different sizes, from the least to the largest, ranging from seventy five cents to four Dollars, cases or Frames included.

These pictures are warranted as durable, as correct and handsome as any ever offered at any price, and are offered so low only for the above reason and for a short time only.

Robinson is not recorded in A Directory of Massachusetts Photographers 1939-1900 or other photographic directories as being active in Springfield, Massachusetts.
