J. W. Houghton appeared in three announcements and three advertisements. The first Announcement appeared on August 16, 1856 in The Winchester Weekly Appeal (Winchester, Tennessee).  Mr. J. W. Houghton is now prepared to execute, in the very best style of the art, Ambrotypes, Photographs and Daguerreotypes, at his room above the Drug establishment of Messrs. Houghton & Loughmiller.  Those who feel symptoms of approaching dissolution, should call and secure a shadow of themselves.  Mr. H’s pictures cannot fail to please.

The first advertisement ran from August 16 to December 19, 1856 in The Winchester Weekly Appeal (Winchester, Tennessee).  Photography.  I am now prepared to execute, in the best style of the art, Ambrotypes, Photographs, or Daguerreotypes, at my rooms, over Houghton & Loughmiller’s drug store.

Those wishing Miniatures, please call and examine specimens.  The Ambrotype I have recently introduced, and succeed far beyond my most sanguine expectations.  They are surely a great improvement over the Daguerreotype, both in beauty of appearance and facility of execution.  Bring on your children—they can be taken before they can have time to move.  Satisfaction in all cases guaranteed or no charge.  J.
