(UP STAIRS.)

JOHN A. WHIPPLE, PROPRIETOR.

This establishment (one of the oldest in the country) is supplied with all the conveniences and instruments necessary to the production of the finest and most accurate representations of persons or places.

The apartments are large and airy. The operators and artists are skilful and experienced.

Daguerrotypes, Photographs, and Stereographs

taken of every size and in all styles.

MR. WHIPPLE gives bis personal and unremitting attention at the Rooms, and will spare no pains to satisfy his customers, and no expense in receiving every improvement in apparatus or methods of operating.

The generous patronage he has received for years has so diffused specimens of his work over the country that it is unnecessary to advertise the numerous recommendations his establishment has received. It has made itself known far and wide; and its past performances are, it is believed, a sufficient guaranty of its present ability. To meet the fashion of the times, particular attention is now paid to OARD PHOT

PHOTOGRAPH S.

MR. WHIPPLE is prepared to take fac-similes of buildings and estates, in town or country, machinery, patterns, engravings, – in fact, of any objects of which there is a desire to multiply copies.

He would call special attention to his success in PHOTOGRAPHING GROUPS.
