F. Sancan was recorded in two advertisement and one announcement in the Thibodaux Minerva.  (Thibodaux, Louisiana).  The first advertisement ran from June 11, 1853 to June 1, 1854. Sache & Sancan, Daguerreotype and Painting Gallery, No. 80 Camp St., New Orleans.  my14.

The announcement appeared on March 11, 1854.  Don’t forget to call on Mr. Sancan, and obtain one of his Daguerreotypes by an entire new process.  See his card.

The second advertisement ran from March 11 to July 22, 1854. Daguerreotype Saloon.  Mr. F. Sancan, has the honor to inform the citizens of Thibodaux and vicinity, that he has opened a Daguerrean Saloon, over the store of Messrs. Badeaux & Bruff, corner of Main and Focus streets, where he will be happy to wait upon those who may honor him with a call.

By an entire new process—one yet little known—he not only gives his pictures a true likeness in features, but also in complexion.  This process has also another advantage in doing away in a partial degree the looking-glass appearance of the ground work.

F. Sancan is not listed in other photographic directories.  See Sache & Sancan post.
