Lewis Overpeck

1855                Rooms at the Union Temperance Hotel, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

Lewis Overpeck was recorded in one advertisement and one announcement in the Lewisburg Chronicle (Lewisburg, Pennsylvania).  The advertisement ran from July 13 to November 23, 1855.  New Establishment!  Lewis Overpeck would respectfully inform the citizens of Lewisburg and vicinity that he has opened rooms at the Union Temperance Hotel, where he is prepared to take Daguerreotype Likenesses in the most improved and life-like manner, and put up in cases varying in price from 50 cts. to $5.  He invites the public to call and try his work, feeling assured that they will be pleased with his workmanship.  Having had superior facilities for instructions in the art, (of J. P. Leisenring, Danville, and C. B. Howard, Reading,) he thinks himself as well perfected in the art as any in this or any other State.

The announcement appeared on December 7, 1855.  If Lewis Overpeck, who once kept a Daguerrean Shop in Lewisburg, will call at our office, he will hear something to his advantage; if not, the public will hear something to their advantage.

Lewis Overpeck is not recorded in other photographic directories.
