Messrs. Pride

1844                Rooms in the Cobble Stone Block, Batavia, New York.

Messrs. Pride were recorded in two announcements in The Spirit of the Times (Batavia, New York).  The first announcement ran on March 27, 1844.  Daguerreotype Miniatures.—It may not be known to many of our readers that the Messrs. Pride have taken one of the upper rooms in the Cobble-Stone block, and are prepared to furnish Daguerreotype Miniatures on the “shortest notice.  We examined several that were taken yesterday, many of which were as perfect as could possibly be taken.  They warrant a faithful picture to any one who will sit,—one which shall be satisfactory to the sitter.  Our citizens will find it a pleasant place to lounge for a half hour.  Call and see for yourself.

The second announcement appeared on April 3, 1844.  Photographic Likenesses.—The Messrs. Pride continue to furnish accurate portraits at their daguerrian Gallery, in the Cobble Stone block.  The likenesses taken yesterday and the day before are excellent.  Call and examine them, or come and see ours.

Messrs. Pride are not recorded in other photographic directories.
