On this day (November 19) in the year 1851, the following advertisement 
appeared in the "Voice of the Fugitive" (Sandwich [today Windsor], 
Canada West [today Ontario]) Vol. 1, No. 24: 
- - - - - - - - -
p. 3 advertisement:


D. Everlyn Hall, Daguerrean Artist, would inform the
citizens of Detroit that he has opened rooms in
Fireman's Hall Jefferson Avenue, where he is prepared
to take Miniatures, single or in groups, for Rings,
Pins, Lockets, Bracelets &c., with or without Colors,
in the highest style of the Photographic Art, for all
who may favor him with their patronage.
Pictures taken in all kinds of weather and warranted
proof against all time.  All are solicited to call,
Detroit, Nov. 10, 1851.

With thanks to Dennis Gannon who adds this comment: I suspect that this 
same ad appeared at the same time in Detroit newspapers -- Detroit is 
just across the Detroit river (and an international border) from 
Sandwich/Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Posted for your enjoyment.     Gary W. Ewer
