1850 Rooms at Franklin House, Up-Stairs, Fremont, Ohio.
J. Safford was recorded in two announcements and one advertisement in the Fremont Weekly Freeman (Fremont, Ohio). The first announcement ran on July 13, 1850. Daguerreotypes! We direct the attention of our readers to the advertisement of J. Safford, in another column of this week’s papers. We have examined some of the likenesses taken by him, and far as our judgment goes, we should pronounce them superior quality. Call and examine for yourselves, and be satisfied.
The advertisement ran on July 13 and 20, 1850. Daguerreotypes. Daguerreian Likenesses, taken in all forms, and in the most approved styles by J. Safford, Rooms—At the Franklin House, up-stairs, Where he will remain a few days only.
The Ladies and gentlemen of Fremont and vicinity, are respectfully invited to call and examine his specimens.
The second announcement ran on July 20, 1850. Daguerreotypes. The man that takes Daguerreotypes “as is Daguerreotypes” is in town. The ladies and gentlemen of Fremont, if they wish to get a picture taken right, had better put on their “fix-ups” and call on Mr. Safford at the Franklin House, up stairs. He will remain but a few days, so you will do well
“To secure the shadow ere the substance fades.”
J. Safford is not recorded in other photographic directories.
