Leisenring & Eckman

1855                Rooms above Friling & Grant’s Store, Sunbury, Pennsylvania.

Leisenring & Eckman (J. P. Leisenring & J. K. Eckman) were recorded in one advertisement that ran from April 21 to July 7, 1855 in the Sunbury American (Sunbury, Pennsylvania).  Daguerreotypes.  J. P. Leisenring & J. K. Eckman of Danville, respectfully announce to the ladies and gentlemen of Sunbury and vicinity, that they have opened Daguerrean rooms above Friling & Grant’s Store, in Sunbury, where they are ready to accommodate those who may favor them with a call, with beautiful and life-like miniatures.

All who desire miniatures will do well to call early and secure their pictures, as we know not what  day may bring forth.

Then hasten to our rooms, all ye people,

Before you have reason to grieve;

The cost you will find but little,        

And to satisfaction we’ll give.

Leisenring & Eckman are not recorded in other photographic directories as being active as partners.  J. P. Leisenring is recorded in Danville in Directory of Pennsylvania Photographers 1839-1900 and in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry.  J. K. Eckman is not recorded.  Using modern roads the distance between Sunbury and Danville, Pennsylvania is 13.7 miles.
