M. Robeson is not recorded in other photographic directories.  In reviewing A Director of Pennsylvania Photographers 1839-1900 and Craig’s Daguerreian Registry the name Martin Roberts appears at Hutchinson Street, below Master Street.  It is possible they are the same person and that Robeson is a printers typo.
