Mr. Stratton

1856                Main Street, Eaton, Ohio.

Mr. Stratton was recorded in one announcement and one advertisement in the Eaton Democrat  (Eaton, Ohio).  The announcement appeared on September 4, 1856.  Daguerreotypist.  It is not often that small towns are visited by skillful daguerreotypist, but we consider that Eaton is very much favored at present, by one who understands the business thoroughly, in the person of Mr. Stratton.  His collection of photographs and daguerreotypes are excellent and faithful, and well worthy of examination.  We advise our readers to give him a call when in town, and examine his pictures, and while there, secure a specimen of his skill.  You will never regret it.

The advertisement ran from September 18 to October 23, 1856.  Who has not heard of Stratton, He who has been making those beautiful Ambrotype Likenesses, for the past three months in Eaton?

Well, that same Stratton may still be found at his Gallery, on Main Street until the second week in October, after which he will be among the missing.  So all you who want a good Likeness had better call on him before that time.  He charges nothing for looking at Specimens, and only a moderate price for a correct picture of your own phiz.                           

Mr. Stratton is not recorded in other photographic directories.
