Theodore Kirchof

1853-1854       Rooms above J. Strauss Store, Main Street, Yazoo City, Mississippi.

Theodore Kirchof was recorded in one announcement and three advertisements.  The first announcement appeared in The Yazoo Democrat (Yazoo City, Mississippi) on December 7, 1853.  By reference to the advertisement of Mr. Kirchof, it will be seen that he is provided with all the essentials required to copy the “human face divine.”  Give him a call.

The first advertisement ran from December 7, 1853 to March 22, 1854 in The Yazoo Democrat  (Yazoo City, Mississippi).  Daguerrean Gallery, The subscriber would respectfully inform the Ladies and Gentlemen of Yazoo City and vicinity, that he has opened a Gallery above the store of J. Strauss nearly opposite to Heard’s Store, for the purpose of taking Daguerreotypes.  He has on hand many fine specimens and a well selected stock of materials for operation.  His gallery has the advantage of a splendid light which will enable him to take likenesses as well in cloudy as in clear weather.  He would suggest that he is provided with an apparatus with which to take duplicate from old Daguerreotypes, and at the same time to give the copy the same tone and brilliancy of the original.

After many years of experience in the art he thinks himself able to give satisfaction to all who may honor him with a call.  Theodore Kirchof.

The second announcement appeared in The Yazoo City Weekly Whig (Yazoo City, Mississippi) on January 27, 1854.  We direct attention to the advertisement of the daguerrean Gallery in another column.  Mr. Kirchof is the best artist we have ever had among us, and we advise those that want good likenesses to call on him.
