Horace G. Smiley

1855-1856       Water Street, Augusta, Maine.

Horace G. Smiley was recorded in one advertisement that ran from November 8, 1855 to January 17, 1856 in the Maine Farmer (Augusta, Maine).  H. G. Smiley, Daguerreotypist, Would inform his friends and the public, that he has taken the well-known stand formerly occupied by J. G. Holcomb where he is now ready to furnish them with first class Pictures, upon the most reasonable terms.

The rooms are in excellent order for taking Daguerreotypes, and the public cannot fail of being delighted as well as satisfied with the remarkable life-like appearance of his pictures.  They can be taken in foul as well as fair weather; so let none stay away for want of time.  Pictures warranted not to fade. 

Horace G. Smiley is recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry as being active in Augusta, Maine in 1856.
