Dr. Yarnall

1854                Old Methodist Church, Glasgow, Missouri.

Dr. Yarnall was recorded in two announcements in the Glasgow Weekly Times (Glasgow, Missouri).  The first appeared on April 6, 1854.  Daguerreotypes.  Dr. Yarnall will leave in a few days.  Those desiring elegant likenesses would do well to call immediately.  Rooms at the Old Methodist Church, where a fine collection of specimens can be seen.

The second appeared on April 13, 1854.  Daguerreotypes.—Dr. Yarnall is still at the old Methodist Church, where those who have not been served, can secure beautiful and correct likenesses of themselves or fiends.  He has one of the finest instruments we have ever seen, and his work is the best evidence as to his capacity to use it.

Dr. Yarnall is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Glasgow, Missouri.  In tomorrow’s post Mr. Yarnall is recorded in Charles Town, Virginia.

Listed in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry is a Charles Yarnall active in 1858-1860 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and William Yarnall from Newark, Ohio who was issued a patent No. 9,511 in 1852 for “chromo-photographic painting” or “prismatic daguerreotype process”.
