W. H. Worth

1842                Address Unknown, Cold Springs, New York.

W. H. Worth appeared in one announcement on November 25, 1842 inThe Long Islander  (Huntington, New York).  Daguerreotype Portraits.—Mr. W. H. Worth is now in Cold Springs, with his improved Daguerreotype Apparatus, and is prepared to take miniature portraits by the chemical effect of light.  By this discovery he is enabled to obtain the most perfect facsimile picture of any object that is placed within the field of the instrument for a few moments-without any flattery or exaggeration and all those who are desirous of obtaining a faithful representation.

W. H. Worth is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Cold Springs. New York.  It is possible that William H. Worth (which will be posted tomorrow November 26) are the same person.
