A. H. Whitehead

1855                Rooms Over Nanson & Bartholow’s Furniture Store, Glasgow, Missouri.

A. H. Whitehead was recorded in one advertisement that ran from May 10 to 17, 1855 in the Glasgow Weekly Times (Glasgow, Missouri).  Shadows Turned into Substance.

Surprising art by which we lend

Our countenance to absent friends,

Or leave a token for the bower

Where love laments the parting hour.

The undersigned would respectfully invite the attention of the public to his recently fitted up Daguerrean Rooms, situated over Nanson & Bartholow’s Furniture Store, (entrance on water street) where he will remain but a few days only.  All lovers of the fine art are invited to call and examine his specimens whether desiring pictures or not.

Persons who are not supplied with a superior style of Daguerreotypes will find this a favorable opportunity to secure a beautiful picture of those dear friends who may soon be the absent, but not forgotten.  A. H. Whitehead, Artist.

A. H. Whitehead is not recorded in other photographic directories.
