Among many triumphs they took one of the earliest photographs of ether being used in a medical operation at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1847.
 
The building which contained the Southworth & Hawes studio at 5 1/2 Tremont Row in Boston no longer exists as it was leveled when Scollay Square was razed. It was in the area now occupied by the courthouse and police headquarters.
