Alexander B. Weeks

1852                137 Atlantic Street, Brooklyn, New York.

Alexander B. Weeks of the partnership of Fredericks and Weeks was recorded in two advertisements. The first advertisement ran from October 13 to 30, 1852 in the New York Daily Tribune (New York, New York).  In all conscience enough has been said about Daguerreotypes; but, friends, just called at the new Rooms, opened by Fredericks & Weeks, (second floor,) No. 137 Atlantic-st., between Henry and Clinton-sts., Brooklyn, and without saying much, we will show you pictures that we rather guess will please you.  C. D. Fredericks.   A. B. Weekes.

The second advertisement ran from October 25 to November 29, 1852 in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle (Brooklyn, New York).  Something New—The attention of the citizens of Brooklyn are respectfully invited to the Daguerreotypes taken daily at the new rooms of Fredericks & Weeks, (second floor,) 137 Atlantic Street, between Clinton and Henry streets, South Brooklyn.  C. D. Fredricks, A. B. Weeks.

Alexander B. Weeks is recorded in other photographic directories.  Craig’s Daguerreian Registry list him apparently working for J. Gurney between 1848-1854.
