Names:
Other: Bisbee & Robertson 
Born:  US, MA
Active:  US
 
  
Born in Massachusetts, this award-winning photographer, Albert Bisbee established his photographic practice in Ohio and wrote The History and Practice of Daguerreotyping, an instructional manual, in 1853 (Dayton, Ohio: L.F. Claflin & Co.) . As a partner in Bisbee & Robertson from 1853-1856, the partners photographed Cincinatti from across the river in Kentucky and then exhibited the six large daguerreotype plates at the New York Industrial Exhibition. These oversized images received a silver medal for “extra large plates.’ In 1856, Albert Bisbee and Yearless Day patented an improvement in photographic pictures on glass that they called the “Sphereotype" (US Patent #14946). From 1850 to 1860 Bisbee had studios in Dayton, Columbus, and Cleveland. A. Bisbee’s Photography Gallery was listed for the last time in a 1863 Cleveland directory though it is said he maintained the gallery until 1865.
