  The research archive of Gary W. Ewer regarding the history of the daguerreotype

The following advertisement appeared the July 1854 issue of "The American Phrenological Journal"(New York: Fowler and Wells): ---------------------------------------------------------- BRADY'S C A R D T O T H E P U B L I C A NEW FEATURE IN DAGUERREOTYPES HAS RECENTLY BEEN INTRODUCED BY BRADY, AT HIS OLD GALLERY, 205 BROADWAY, CORNER OF FULTON STREET. The extent of his Establishment enables him to produce for 50 cents, and $1, pictures of a quality infinitely superior to the phantoms usually designated cheap pictures. This is a new feature in first-class establishments, and the fame of the artist is too well known to doubt its success. The public can now rely on obtaining as good a picture for that price as can possibly be put up, and a far better picture than can be obtained elsewhere at the same rates. Brady's New Gallery, 359 Broadway, over Thompson's Saloon, is fitted up with great taste and beauty, and possesses greater facilities for the production of first- class portraits than any similiar establishment in this country. These Galleries form an elegant resort for persons of taste--containing as they do the largest collection of distinguished portraits in America. Prize Medals were AWARDED to Brady at the Word's Fair in London, 1851, and at the Crystal Palace, New York, 1853. BRADY'S DAGUERREAN GALLERIES, nos. 205 & 359 Broadway, over Thompson's Saloon. ------------------------- more -------------- Some on-line news: The George Eastman House is now on the World Wide Web.
