Mr. Kever

1845                Room over Ferguson’s Watch Store, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Mr. Kever was recorded in three announcements in the Indiana State Sentinel (Indianapolis, Indiana).  The first announcement appeared on November 12, 1845.  Daguerreotyping.  We are happy to announce that Mr. Kever, an excellent artist, has taken the room over Ferguson’s Watch Store, where he is prepared to furnish excellent Daguerreotype miniatures.  We have examined a number of his execution, and have seldom, if ever, seen them surpassed.  We hope he will receive a liberal patronage.

The second announcement appeared on November 13, 1845.  Daguerreotyping.  We are happy to announce that Mr. Kever, an excellent artist, has taken the room over Ferguson’s Watch Store, where he is prepared to furnish excellent Daguerreotype miniatures.  We have examined a number of his execution, and have seldom, if ever, seen them surpassed.  We hope he will receive a liberal patronage. 

The third announcement appeared on December 4, 1845.  Daguerrian Miniatures.  There are three persons engaged at present in this city, in taking photographic miniatures; and all of them, we believe, are excellent artists.  We have already spoken of Mr. Kever.  We now desire to commend to the public attention Mr. Macey, whose room is over the Dayton Hat and Shoe Store.  Mr. M. deserves patronage on several accounts.  In the first place, he is a first rate artist, and secondly, he is unfortunate by reason of an accident, which has almost entirely deprived him of the use of an arm.  His gentlemanly demeanor is sure to win the approbation of all with whom he may become acquainted.  We hope the ladies as well as gentlemen, will give him a call.

Mr. Kever, and Mr. Macey are not recorded in other photographic directories.
