Austin Lane

1854                Rooms in the Commercial Building, over Oliphant’s Iron Store, Morgantown,                                Virginia.

Austin Lane was recorded in one announcement and one advertisement.  The announcement appeared on May 6, 1854 in the Monongalia Mirror (Morgantown, Virginia).  Counterfeiting.—Mr. Lane, up at commercial Buildings, has fitted up his apparatus for counterfeiting the—“human face divine;” and it is said that his counterfeits so resemble the genuine as to be difficult of detection.  Then should you wish a faithful Daguerreotype of yourself or “next friend,” call at once at the Room over Oliphant’s Iron Store.  Mr. Lane may not tarry long, and it is not every day that we have the opportunity to patronize an artist of his attainments in the Daguerrean art.

The advertisement ran from May 6 to June 3, 1854 in the Monongalia Mirror (Morgantown, Virginia).  Austin Lane, Daguerreian Artist, Commercial Building, over Oliphant’s Iron Store, Morgantown, VA.  Call and see specimens at his room.  Particular attention given and satisfaction guaranteed in the beauty and correctness of the pictures.
