Lott M. Scammon

1847-1848       Rooms over J. M. Gould’s Store, Hallowell, Maine.

Lott M. Scammon was recorded in one advertisement that ran from December 11, 1847 to January 1, 1848 in the Maine Cultivator and Hallowell Gazette (Hallowell, Maine). 

Daguerreotype Portraits.  Lott M. Scammon, Having taken the Rooms over J. M. Gould’s Store, is prepared to execute Portraits in the most approved styles, for all those who may favor him with their patronage.  Pictures taken at his rooms are free from that dark shade so common with Daguerreotypists, and in point of distinctness and softness of tone are unsurpassed by any.

Statuary, Landscapes and Pictures copied true to the original.  Likenesses of dead persons often taken so as to resemble a natural sleep.

L. M. Scammon will also take the likenesses of sick people at their residences by leaving their addresses at his rooms.  Terms reasonable.

Lot M. Scammon is not listed in other photographic directories as being active in Maine.  Craig’s Daguerreian Registry does list an L. M. Scammon in Chicago, Illinois in 1854-1855 as daguerreian materials, it is unknown if they are the same person.
