David S. Weeks

1852                Main Street, at Richard Kirk’s Store, Glen Cove, New York.

1852                House of John Charlick, Roslyn, New York

David S. Weeks was recorded in two advertisements and two announcements in The Plaindealer  (Roslyn, New York).  The first advertisement ran from July 9 to 16, 1852.  Daguerreotype Likenesses!  David S. Weeks, Daguerrian Artist from New-York, Has Opened His Rooms For A few days only, at the store of Richard Kirk, on Main-St., where he is prepared to take Portraits & Miniatures by this beautiful art, in a style of finish greatly superior to any offered before in this place.

How often has the regret been expressed by hundreds, that they do not possess a Likeness of a departed friend or relative, which might have been taken when in health and life, and how valuable do these become to those who possess them, when their friend have passed away.

The present is a favorable opportunity to secure these faithful representations of our friends while they are offered at such prices that all may possess them.  The impressions are truly the exact resemblance of the face, made upon tablets of silver, rendered perfectly durable by a chemical Preparation, and not the mere fancy of the painter’s skill.

Hours of operating from 8 A. M. until sundown.

Hours for Children from 10 A. M. until 2 P. M.

The citizens of Glen Cove and its vicinity, are most respectfully invited to call and examine specimens.                                                                                             

The first announcement appeared on July 16, 1852.  Weeks, the Daguerreotype man, still continues with us, and is doing a good business.  Our friends who have not had their “picture taken” should make all haste, ere they be too late; for it is not often that they have the opportunity of being operated upon by a good artist.  Give him a call!

The second announcement appeared on July 30, 1852.  Weeks, the Daguerreotype man, is about leaving this place, as the reader will understand by referring to his advertisement in to-day’s paper, for the beautiful village of Roslyn, where he intends being on Monday or Tuesday next, and where we predict for him a good business.

The second advertisement ran from July 30 to August 6, 1852.  Daguerreotype Likenesses!  David S. Weeks, Daguerrian Artist from New-York, Has Opened His Rooms For A few days only, at the House of John Charlick, Roslyn, where he is prepared to take Portraits & Miniatures by this beautiful art, in a style of finish greatly superior to any offered before in this place.
