1859 6 Seneca-Street, Opposite the Post Office, Geneva, New York.
D. Sutphen was recorded in one advertisement that ran from December 25 to December 30, 1859 in the Geneva Daily Gazette (Geneva, New York.) Sutphen’s Photographic, Ambrotype, and Daguerreotype Gallery. No. 6, Seneca-St., Opposite The Post Office. The subscriber would respectfully inform the citizens of Geneva and surrounding towns, that he is ready to make all kinds of Camera pictures.—His long experience in the business, and well adjusted chemicals, enables him to make as good pictures as the art can produce. To be convinced of the fact you need only call and sit for a picture.
If you want a good Daguerreotype, Ambrotype, or Photograph, call at Sutphen’s. Everything shall be done that is necessary to make this a first-class room, and to make first-rate pictures.
Remember the place, No. 6, Seneca street, over Van Deren’s. D. Sutphen.
D. Sutphen is not recorded as being active in Geneva, New York. Craig’s Daguerreian Registry does list a David Sutpen as being active in Moravia, New York in 1859. The distance between the two towns is about 48 miles. It is unknown if they are the same person but the probability is there.
