Jones & Holmes

1855                289 Broadway, New York, New York.

Jones & Holmes was recorded in one advertisement that appeared on October 11, 1855 in The New York Herald (New York, New York).  The Lampratype is the greatest triumph of the sun’s pencillings in modern times.  The specimens of this new art—large size portraits taken yesterday, by Holmes, 289 Broadway—present the most important day’s work of years.  A new era is dawning at the old picture shop.  See the grand lampratype pictures, and you will enjoy a treat which the photograph and daguerreotype fail to offer.  Jones & Holmes.

Jones & Holmes are not recorded as partners in other photographic directories.  No first name is recorded for Jones, based on the address 289 Broadway this has to be Silas A. Holmes.
