1852 One door west of G. H. Shepard’s Grocery, Huntington, New York.
G, W. Sammis of the partnership Clark & Sammis was recorded in one announcement and one advertisement in The Long Islander (Huntington, New York). The announcement appeared on August 27, 1852. ‘Secure the shadow ere the substance Flies.’ The advertisement of our young friends Clark & Sammis, who have opened a Daguerrian Gallery, first door west of this office, will be seen in our columns this week. They are now doing up their friends in inimitable style, and in a way to make an enduring impression. The pleasant location of their Rooms, polite attention of the operators, and the superior quality of their work is their guarantee of public patronage.
Whether the cloud is on the sky, Or fiercely shines the summer sun, The people may call in ceaseless crowds To Clark’s to get their pictures done.
