1850                311 Broadway, New York, New York.

Qusley was recorded on one advertisement that ran on October 24 to 26, 1850 in the New York Daily Tribune (New York, New York).  Ha!  Ha!!  We Thought So.—The great premium of public approbation (the highest honor out) has been awarded to Qusley’s matchless Daguerreotypes.  The past ten years he has received gold and silver medals, without number, from members of the scientific bodies in all parts of the Union.  There will now be a great rush to his elegant Sky-Light Gallery, 311 Broadway, New York, New York.

Qusley is not listed in other photographic directories, in addition he is not listed in the 1850/1851 or the 1851/1852 New York City Directories.  The 311 Broadway address is the same as Henry E. Insley’s.  It is possibly that this is a typo for Insley, or  was there more than one daguerrean gallery in the building or did he work for or with Insley?
