Where may be had Miniatures which for beauty of coloring, tone and effect, cannot be surpassed. By a new process, the dim and shadowy appearance of the pictures formerly so much complained of, is entirely obviated; and Mr. Brady respectfully invites the criticism of a just and intelligent public.
Likenesses in all cases warranted to give satisfaction, and colored in the most beautiful manner by a practical and competent artist.
Ladies, Gentlemen, and all strangers are invited to call at the Gallery, whether they intend sitting or not.
Miniatures taken in all kinds of weather, from 8 A. M. till 5 P. M.
The American Institute awarded a first premium to Mr. Brady at the late Fair.
Instructions carefully given in the art.
M. B. BRADY.
