Young & Cooper

1841                Rooms in the Kirkland Block, Utica, New York.

Young & Cooper were recorded in one announcement and one advertisement in the Oneida Whig  (Utica, New York).  The announcement appeared on February 2, 1841.  Daguerreotype Likenesses.—The attention of our readers is solicited to the advertisement of Messrs. Young & Cooper.  Any person who is desirous of possessing a perfect miniature

representation of himself, will do well to call and receive a touch of their art.

The advertisement ran from February 2 to March 9, 1841.  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  Messrs. Young & Cooper respectfully inform the citizens of Utica and its vicinity that they contemplate remaining for only a few weeks longer in this city: so that if there are any persons who are desirous of having their miniatures or portrait beautifully and accurately taken by this wonderful instrument they must attend to it in time; for they may depend upon it they have an opportunity offered them now which they will not again have for years.  They have been able to so arrange their instrument that they are now able to take the most beautiful miniatures that have been taken by this instrument in this country, in the short space of from fifteen seconds to two and a half minutes, without any sun and in all kinds of weather.  The community generally are respectfully invited to call and examine specimens of the art; and the proprietors flatter themselves that on such examination the citizens of this city will very generally consent to see themselves as others see them, through the aid of this instrument.

Messrs. Young & Cooper will be found any time during the day at their rooms in the Kirkland Block.                                                                                        

Young and Cooper are not recorded in other photographic directories.
