1856                313 Broadway, New York, New York.[1]

Thompson was recorded in the Photographic and fine Arts Journal (New York, New York) on  January 1, 1856.  In an article entitled the Photographic Galleries of America.  Number One, New York. The author visited 69 Galleries in New York City.

Thompson, 313 Broadway — This gallery I believe is pretty well known. There is little fault to be found with the pictures, they are sharp, well-developed and clear, three great requisites. The ambrotypes are as good as can be expected from the newness of the process. On the whole I think the public in general will listen to the name of Thompson with different feelings than Mr. Toodle.

Thompson is not listed in other photographic directories.  This is probably Josiah W. Thompson who is listed in 1856 as being at 315 Broadway.
