The most desirable location for this business in
the city; first floor over Haskell & Howland's
large Silk and Shawl Store, in the new and splendid
stone building, just erected, and entirely free from the
many objections and annoyances inseparable from
procuring likenesses at many other places.  The pro-
prietor's aim will be to make his rooms a genteel and
fashionable place of resort, where the public are guar-
antied as good pictures as this beautiful and valuable
art can produce, and his object being to EXCEL, no
pains or expense will be spared to secure the most
competent skill in every thing appertaining to the
business, and he would be glad of every opportunity
to compare his work, or put his skill in competition
with others.
  Mr. Snow, direct from Mr. Plumbe's, where his
long experience and unparalleled success prove he
CANNOT BE EXCELLED, will conduct the opera-
ting department.  Persons desirous of having like-
nesses are respectfully invited to call, and the most
fastidious shall be suited, or no charge.
   Instruction given, apparatus and stock furnished,
and warranted such as represented.
   Pictures taken in any weather.        tf       23
