Lake & Marsh

1855                Over Fresco Hall, Warren, Ohio.

Lake & Marsh were recorded in one announcement and one advertisement in the Western Reserve Chronicle (Waren, Ohio). The announcement appeared on June 27, 1855.–Messrs. Lake & Harsh (sic.), on the second floor of the same building, are taking good Daguerreotype pictures.

The advertisement ran from June 27 to Nov 7, 1855.  A Change.—Something New And Interesting To The Public—The old Rooms formerly occupied by H. W. Holloway together with the entire stock and interest of same, having been purchased by Lake & Marsh, experienced Daguerreotypists, they are now prepared to execute work in the best style of the art.

Having a large amount of Stock, and Cases of all kinds and sizes, they flatter themselves that they can give entire satisfaction to all who may favor them with their patronage.

No Pictures will be sold unless they are positively good ones.

Come old, come young, come great and small,

To the Daguerrean Rooms over “Fresco Hall.” 

Lake & Marsh are not recorded in other photographic directories as being in a partnership in Warren, Ohio.  While their first names are not recorded in the announcement and advertisement another ad ran from December 19, 1855 to March 26, 1856 that identifies Marsh as H. A. Marsh.

Speculation suggest that Lake is C. L. Lake who was first active in 1853 in Mason, Ohio and from 1853 to 1854 in Nelson, Ohio is about fourteen miles away from Warren, Ohio.  Both C. L. Lake and H. A. Marsh are recorded separately in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry and in Ohio Photographers 1839-1900.
