Watson

1858                Rooms Over the Drug Store, Glasgow, Missouri.

Watson was recorded in one advertisement that ran from June 3 to 10, 1858 in the Glasgow Weekly Times (Glasgow, Missouri).  Over The Drug Store. 

Dwellers in Glasgow! How little you know

The power of thy arts, whose glories I sing,

For they’re wafted to all, by breezes that blow,

From perennial lands of soft gentle spring,

For the Goddess of science has stopped in her flight

To deposit with us a gifted fair and bright!

And what do you think her majesty gave?

The “Camera Tube” that picture the brave,

The young or the old, the lovely and fair,

Oh really good gracious what a blessing it are.

Daguerreotypes Bright,

And Photographs right,

That index the face as truly as life:

With Ambrotypes new,

So faithful and true,

To picture the husband, son, daughter and wife.

Secure the shadow, ere the substance fade,

For time will cast o’er all a deeper shade,

And life-like ties soon be broken,

And farewell words yet to be spoken.

Now Watson’s Rooms are just the place,

To get a copy of your face;

They keep all right forever

And ne’er will dim, no never!

Come and see—

The sight is free!

Call All, At Watson’s.

We would advise all in want of a good picture to give us a call and unless you are perfectly satisfied with our work we will not ask you to take it.—

We think we can safely say we have heretofore given general satisfaction; we therefore feel confident of being able to please the citizens of this place, and all who may honor us with their patronage.

We may be found at the Old Methodist Church.  A. H. & C. C. Tappana.

In this world of notions each man acts his part,

Sites has chosen the Daguerrean Art,

He has just arrived in the city of Glasgow,

Where he has hung out his shingle to show—

The people of the place—the greatest of places,

To see how well he can counterfeit faces.

He takes fine pictures in all kinds of weather,

With the lights and shades neatly blended together,

Come down to the Glasgow House, and before

You go in you will see his sign at the door,

Walk up, take a chair—lean your arm on the stand,

Sites will then give you a touch of the grand.

He’ll take you a picture which never’ll fade away,

A thousand years hence, will be bright as to-day;

And see some sights (Sites) in the Daguerrean Hall,

If you’ve time you had better give him a call,

He takes all sizes from cases to lockets,

And readily suites the state of your pockets.
