1858 Rooms Over the Drug Store, Glasgow, Missouri.
Watson was recorded in one advertisement that ran from June 3 to 10, 1858 in the Glasgow Weekly Times (Glasgow, Missouri). Over The Drug Store.
Dwellers in Glasgow! How little you know
The power of thy arts, whose glories I sing,
For they’re wafted to all, by breezes that blow,
From perennial lands of soft gentle spring,
For the Goddess of science has stopped in her flight
To deposit with us a gifted fair and bright!
And what do you think her majesty gave?
The “Camera Tube” that picture the brave,
The young or the old, the lovely and fair,
Oh really good gracious what a blessing it are.
And Photographs right,
That index the face as truly as life:
With Ambrotypes new,
So faithful and true,
To picture the husband, son, daughter and wife.
Secure the shadow, ere the substance fade,
For time will cast o’er all a deeper shade,
And life-like ties soon be broken,
And farewell words yet to be spoken.
Now Watson’s Rooms are just the place,
To get a copy of your face;
They keep all right forever
And ne’er will dim, no never!
Come and see—
The sight is free!
Call All, At Watson’s.
