1849 Water Street, Over D. Alden & Co’s Hat and Cap Store, Augusta, Maine.
E. C. Hall was recorded in one advertisement that ran from May 31 to December 26, 1849 in the Maine Farmer (Augusta, Maine). Daguerreotype Rooms, Over D. Alden & Co’s Hat and Cap Store, Water Street, Augusta, Maine. The subscribers would respectfully inform the people of Augusta and vicinity, that they have had long experience in their business, and have within the last six months made a simple discovery and decided improvements, which is highly pleasing to the operator and subject. By this new beautifier and accelerating chemical agent, with our top-light and large apparatus, miniatures will be executed in the surprising short space of from 3 to 15 seconds, bearing any tone, from deep, rich shade, to the freshness of life. Those having poor and spotted Daguerreotypes, taken by the old process, can exchange them for finished ones, (warranted not to change,) for the very low price of $1. Ladies and Gentlemen are invited to call and judge for themselves. Rooms open from 7 A. M. to 6 P. M.
Instruction given in the Art, with all the late improvements. Apparatus of all kinds for sale, and stock of the best quality. E. C. Hall & Co.
