Bostwick & Fuller

The partnership of Bostwick & Fuller was mentioned in an announcement and advertisements in The Sumter Banner (Sumterville, South Carolina.) on February 27, 1850. The notice and advertisement announces the arrival of C. D. Boyden from the Daguerrean Gallery of Messrs. Bostwick & Fuller.

In the book Partners with the Sun South Carolina Photographers, 1840-1940. By Harvey S. Teal.  Page 48.  Bostwick & Squires…Bostwick “states in a May 1850 Georgetown newspaper that he was “recently from New York & directly from the City of Charleston.”  The same information is also recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry.

Unfortunately no first names are given in any of the newspaper accounts.  It is unknown if Bostwick was a practicing  Daguerreotypist in New York City  or in the State New York.
