W H I T E would re- spectfully call the attention of citizens and strangers visiting the city, to his splendid collection of Daguerreotype Portraits, single or in groups from 2 to 14 persons on the same plate, which for beauty and accuracy of delineation cannot be sur- passed. Portraits taken in all kinds of weather, either with or without the colors, the prices of which he has reduced to those charged by the most inexperienced in the business. The American Institute at its late exhibition awarded Mr. White the First Premium for the best Daguerreotype Likeness- es, (for grouping and general effect) which is but another proof to the superiority of his Portraits. Mr. White is sole agent in New York for the very superior imported German Cameras, and at no other establishment in the city or state can they be obtained. N. B.--Imported German Cameras, also French and Ameri- can instruments of the very best quality, with Plates, Cases Chemicals, Polishing materials, &c. Mr. White's Case Manufactory being the largest and most extensive in the United States, he is enabled (from the quantity he manufactures) to sell Daguerreotype Miniature Cases, 10 per cent lower than any other house in the Union. *18ye * * * * * * F I R S T P R E M I U M N E W - Y O R K D A G U E R R I A N M I N I A T U R E G A L L E R Y, Corner of Broadway and Fulton street, entrance third door, WHERE may be had MINIATURES which, for beauty of color, tone and effect, can at all times commend themselves; and if not superior, are equal to any that have been heretofore taken. Mr. B. does not claim superiority for himself, but leaves his pictures to the criticisms of a just and intelligent public, who, as well as strangers, are invited sit- ing or not. Likenesses in all cases warranted to give satisfac- tion, and colored in a most beautiful manner, and in which de- partment Mr. B. does claim superiority, it being filled by a competent and practical person. Taken in all kinds of weather, from 8 A.M. till 5 P.M. The American Institute awarded a First Premium to M. B. Brady at the late Fair. Instructions carefully given in the art. d7 3m*y M. B.
