It has become an acknowledged fact that the human countenance can be preserved without decay, and from the long experience and through knowledge of all the improvements appertaining to the art, and the many facilities with which they are enabled to operate in their new Car, they flatter themselves that their work will not suffer in comparison with that of the most popular Artists of the country.

They are now prepared to take pictures of all sizes, from the smallest miniature even to the largest ever taken, at prices ranging from One to Fifteen dollars.  Perfect satisfaction given, or no charge.

Their Stock is also of the best quality, consisting in part of Gold Lockets, Pins, Rings, Bracelets, Jewel, Jenny Lind, Pearl, and French Miniature Cases.  Fancy, French, and Kossuth Frames, of large and small sizes, &c.

The first announcement appeared on May 14, 1850 in the St. Lawrence Republican  (Ogdensburgh, New York).  “Daguerreotypes by Sky-Light.”  Messrs. Smith & Oswell:  Gentlemen—Seeing the above mentioned new invention in taking Daguerreotype Miniatures, I was induced to sit for one; and to my astonishment, succeeded in getting a good likeness, well shaded, and devoid of the dtiff, hard expression, usually seen, in such miniatures, and that without experiencing the unpleasant sensation to the eyes, caused by the ordinary method in use heretofore.

So well please was I with this trial, that I requested some friends, whose daguerreotypes—not likenesses—I had taken by different operators—some within two months—to sit for their’s; and the result was, Mr. Olds possesses those first taken, and I possess those taken by him, in exchange—In other words, exchanging pictures for likenesses.

Give us a call Mr. Olds, before you are much Older.   Yours, &c., “A. Bytownian.”

The second announcement appeared on September 21, 1852 in the St. Lawrence Republican  (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Official Report Of The St. Lawrence Agricultural Fair….Discretionary Premiums.

E. H. Olds, daguerreotypes,             $1.00.

The third announcement appeared on October 26, 1852 in the St. Lawrence Republican (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Destructive Fire In Ogdensburgh…In a short space of time buildings on the west side of Isabella street were enveloped in flames, and every building on the north side of Ford street from Mr. J. N. Oswell’s corner to and including Mr. Benedict’s block…

The fourth announcement appeared on December 11, 1855 in The Ogdensburgh Sentinel (Ogdensburgh, New York).  For The Sentinel.  Ambrotypes.  Editor Sentinel.—Very few are aware of the great improvement in the art of taking portraits.  Daguerreotypes are eclipsed and thrown into the shade by what is termed Ambrotypes or pictures on glass.  Being desirous of having my phiz preserved after I had left this sublunary sphere, I stepped into the Premium Daguerreotype and Ambrotype Gallery of our fellow townsman, E. H. Olds, Esq., Eagle Block, who, in addition to being the best artist in Northern New York, is a “prince of good fellows.”  A very few moments sufficed to transfer my agreeable countenance to a plate of polished glass, in a manner truly astonishing to those not having seen specimens of Ed’s word.  Mr. Olds with his usual enterprise, has at great expense purchased the only right of taking double-glass Ambrotypes for this county, and should receive the patronage he deserves.

There is a kind of picture called by some Ambrotypes, that do not bear the least comparison with the genuine.  Having had opportunities of seeing the works of the best city operators, I can say with truth that the pictures of Mr. Olds are fully equal to them, and in many cases superior; for the reason that he allows none but first class pictures to leave his gallery.  Persons wishing a good picture should visit Olds’ Gallery, and examine his specimens of Ambrotypes.  He still continues to take his unequalled premium daguerreotypes for those who wish them.  Veritas.

The fifth announcement appeared on December 18, 1855 in The Ogdensburgh Sentinel (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Santa Claus.—We noticed that Santa Claus has arrived in town with a large lot of splendid articles for Christmas presents, and has left them at a good many places…while Olds catches in Daguerreotype or Ambrotype “the human face divine” and cages it in lockets, rings, seals or cases, we do the Fancy Job Work to tell where to find the goods.  And all advertise in the Sentinel.  Who can doubt that the little ones will be cared for on Christmas!

The fourth advertisement ran from May 13 to October 28, 1856 in The Ogdensburgh Sentinel  (Ogdensburgh, New York).  For Sale.  The Subscriber wishes to sell for cash or exchange for other property, a good Daguerrean Saloon, running gear, &c, in perfect order.

Any one wishing to purchase can make a great bargain by calling upon E. H. Olds, at his Daguerrean Rooms in Ogdensburgh.

The sixth announcement appeared on October 7, 1856 in The Ogdensburgh Sentinel  (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Premiums Awarded By The St. Lawrence International Agricultural & Mechanical Society, September, 1856….Class 7—No. 36—Paintings, Drawings, Engravings, &c….

The seventh announcement appeared on August 1, 1857 in The Daily Journal (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Pictures.—A visit to Olds’ Picture Gallery will reveal some of the most perfect specimens of the art to be found in world.  Ambrotypes, Daguerreotypes, Photographs and a variety of other kinds of pictures are put up in various styles and forms and upon many kinds of material.  The most perfect picture we have ever seen is one of a new style, original with Olds’, and which as yet has received no name.  Every and feature and point stands out boldly, every hair is distinctly produced, indeed the miniature seem actually composed of flesh and blood, and possessed of life.—We have seen nothing that approaches so near perfection.

The eighth announcement appeared on September 17, 1858 in The Daily Journal (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Elegant Pictures.—Olds is bound not to be excelled in producing elegant pictures.  Every new invention brought out calculated to improve the style of picture or the facility of taking them, is promptly secured, while his own inventive genius is constantly at work for new discoveries.  Last evening we saw a large crowd eagerly inspecting one of Olds’ latest specimens, which was hanging in Sprague’s show window.  It was a picture of the Institute taken from the foot of Knox Street, near the bank of the Oswegatchie river.  It was taken just before the commencement of School, when the students and pupils were upon the walk, giving the picture a very lively effect.  Knox street, nearly down to Franklin is brought out most beautifully, and all the premises about the institute are produced to perfection.  It is as perfect a specimen of Daguerrian art as ever was taken.  Olds has the best set of instruments of any artist in the State, and can take a picture a little superior to any of them.  Tall talk but nevertheless true.  A visit to his rooms will satisfy any one.  We admire his enterprise.

The sixth advertisement ran from November 30, 1858 to December 27, 1859 in the St. Lawrence Republican and Ogdensburgh Weekly Journal (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Old’s Picture Gallery.  Pictures Of All Styles Taken On Reasonable Terms.  Pictures magnified and colored in oil if required.  No. 8 Eagle Block, Sign Of The Mammoth Eagle, Ford Street, Ogdensburgh, N.

The ninth announcement appeared on  September 27, 1859 in the St. Lawrence Republican and Ogdensburgh Weekly Journal (Ogdensburgh, New York).  The Fair….Music Hall…The exhibition of photographs both plain and colored in oil, daguerrian landscapes, ambrotypes and other varieties of the Art, by Olds were especially worthy of more than a passing remarks.  It has been the good fortune of Mr. Olds to carry off the first premium where ever his pictures have been exhibited.  His gallery has received diploma after diploma, and it is not too much to say that his efforts are still onward.  Few artists possess the ability to make a picture speak like Olds, and we have no doubt he could win laurels in wider fields.  We think his specimens are not to be surpassed anywhere.

The tenth announcement appeared on  October 4, 1859 in the St. Lawrence Republican and Ogdensburgh Weekly Journal (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Messrs. La Mountain And Haddock Safe!…Olds, will take their daguerreotype, and they will leave on the 12 o’clock train for Watertown.

The twelfth announcement appeared on October 13, 1859 in The New York Reformer (Watertown, New York).  —Photography.  Many of our citizens will have noticed, in the Reformer counting-room window, a photograph of LaMountain and Haddock, as they appeared at Ogdensburg on their way home from the Canada wilderness—pantaloons used up, one of them hatless, and both nearly barefooted.  The picture was taken by our old friend, E. H. Olds, Esqr., of Ogdensburgh, whose reputation as an artist and whole-souled man is as wide as the State.  We had less than ten minutes to spare him, and he had no time to finish up the minor details, yet the picture is recognized by all who know the parties, as very accurate and faithful.

Edward H. Olds is recorded in other photographic directories but is recorded here because the activity dates begin in 1850.
