A. Somes appeared in one announcement in The Schenectady Cabinet (Schenectady, New York) on January 1, 1856. Mr. A. Somes, daguerreotypist, has, by repeated experiments in the new and beautiful art of Ambrotyping, brought it to high perfection. We recommend to all who desire a perfect and durable likeness, to call on him at his rooms in Furman’s building, State-street.
A. Somes is recorded in other photographic directories as being a daguerreotypist, active in 1857-1858 in Schenectady.
