Mr. Combs

1846                Rooms at City Hotel, Baton-Rough, Louisiana.

Mr. Combs was recorded in an announcement that ran on February 28, 1846 in the Baton-Rouge Gazette (Baton-Rouge, Louisiana).  Daguerreotype.—Those of our citizens who may be desirous of having their portraits taken, are invited to pay a visit to Mr. Combs, at the City Hotel.  The papers published in the various places he has visited, speak highly of his talents as an artist.

Mr. Combs is not recorded in other photographic directories.


1859                Rooms over Mr. Asher’s Store, Lafayette Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Chappel was recorded in an advertisement in the Sugar Planter (West Baton Rouge, Louisiana.)  on December 31, 1859.  The Baton Rouge Cheap Ambrotype Gallery, Over Mr. Asher’s Store, On Lafayette Street.  Is the place to get a superior, Life-like Ambrotype, of the medium size, for 50 Cents.

These pictures are not the Little Insignificant Daubs which many, who call themselves artist, palm off on the community, at that low price, but they are large, fine pictures of the same size as those generally sold at prices ranging from $1.50 to $2.00.

The public are invited to call at our Rooms and compare our Pictures with those taken by any of the first-class artist.

We are now receiving additions to our already fine stock and apparatus, and are prepared to furnish our friends with superior styles of Pictures, Cases, and Frames.

The public will not fail to remember that the Baton Rouge Cheap Ambrotype Gallery Is not a traveling Institution, but a Permanent Thing, a part of Baton Rouge itself.

Chappel does not appear in other photographic directories.
