Rogers & Palmer

1852                Rooms in City Hall, Columbus, Mississippi.

Rogers & Palmer were recorded in one announcement and two advertisements in the Southern Standard (Columbus, Mississippi).  Daguerreian Gallery.  Messrs. Rogers & Palmer, have taken rooms in the City Hall, and offer their services to this community.  We have examined their specimens, and for artistic skill, and beauty of finish, we regard them as far superior to any Daguerreotypists we have seen in our city.  They exhibited specimens of Crayon finish, very beautiful, and in our opinion, exceedingly exquisite.  It has the effect of bringing out prominently the features of the face, and it appears that a more perfect likeness is obtained in this style of finish.

We recommend our friends to call at the Hall, and examine the specimens.

The first advertisement ran from February 7 to March 20, 1852.  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  Rogers & Palmer would respectfully inform the citizens of Columbus that they have taken rooms in the City Hall for a short time for the purpose of giving the ladies and gentlemen an opportunity obtaining Correct Miniatures of themselves and friends, not surpassed by any elsewhere, without the trouble of going from home.

Miniatures taken single or in groups, without regard to weather, with or without colors, in the latest and most approved style of the art, and neatly set in Lockets, Pins, Rings, Bracelets, Frames, or Cases.

The second advertisement ran from March 20 to April 10, 1852.  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  Rogers & Palmer Would respectfully inform the citizens of Columbus, that they are still at the City Hall, and will remain a short time longer to accommodate those who wish as correct likenesses of themselves and friends as can be had elsewhere, without regard to weather.
