L. G. Bean

1853                Address Unknown, Westerly, Rhode Island.

1856                Address Unknown, Fall River, Massachusetts.[1]

L. G. Bean was recorded in one advertisement that ran from March 24 to April 21, 1853 in

The Literary Echo and Pawcatuck Advertiser (Westerly, Rhode Island).  Daguerreotypes.  Have you had your Daguerreotype taken?  If not now is your time to step into L. G. Bean’s Daguerrean Saloon, where he is prepared to execute likenesses of every size, shape and description.  He would respectfully announce to the citizens of Westerly and vicinity, that he will remain here a few days longer to give all those who have not secured their likeness an opportunity to do so before he leaves.

My sky-light being composed of ground glass and connected with a beautiful side light, it enables me to produce pictures unsurpasse3d by any other operator.  Perfect satisfaction or no charge.

For A Few Days Only!  L. G. Bean.

L. G. Bean is recorded in other photographic directories, but not in Westerly, Rhode Island and is possibly Lothrop G. Bean who is recorded as being active as L. G. Bean in addition to Westerly, Rhode Island in 1853, Fall River in 1856 and in Lowell Massachusetts as Lothrop G. Bean in 1857-1859.
