Outley & Denison

1851-1852       Corner Washington Avenue and Third Street, St. Louis, Missouri.

Outley & Denison (John J. Outley & A. C. Denison) appeared in one advertisement on July 5, 1852 in the Daily St. Louis Times (St. Louis, Missouri).  One Dollar!  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  At Outley & Denison’s Daguerrean Gallery, (formerly Wood & Outley) corner of Washington avenue and Third street, St. Louis.

Pictures taken at the above Gallery from $1 to [10], which we warrant to be equal to any taken in St. Louis.  We would respectfully invite the public generally to call and [see] specimens before having pictures taken at any other rooms, as we pledge [ourselves] to give entire satisfaction in all cases, or no pay.

Instructions given in the art for $25.  All kinds of Daguerreotype stock on hand and for sale low. Outley & Denison, Artists.  oct3.

Outley & Denison are recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry under Outley, John J. as Dennison (A. C.).  A more accurate date on the advertisement is October 3, probably 1851.  We also learn he was active prior to October 3 date in the partnership of Wood & Outley, this is possibly Gardner Wood based on entry dates in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry.
