Dec 1885, The Philadelphia photographer, p. 407:
Mr. E. Long, Quincy, 111., has sent us a photograph of his model solar-printing establishment. Seven direct printers stand with their one eye solemnly directed to the heavens while they work—and it does take Long to fill orders. It is a clean, comfortable-looking place.
Craig's Daguerrian Registry has the following entry for Enoch Long:
He studied daguerreotyping with Robert Cornelius in Philadelphia, Pa. and began his career in 1842. In 1844 he was listed in Boston, Mass., at 96 Washington Street, in business as Long Brothers, with Horatio H. Long. He then operated as a daguerreian in Illinois before going to St. Louis, Mo. in 1848. That year he was listed in partnership with H. Long at the southeast corner of Third and Market Streets, upstairs, with the entrance on Third Street. The firm also sold apparatus and offered instruction. The partnership may have continued until 1852, when E. Long was listed alone at the northeast corner of Fourth and Market Streets, upstairs, over Francis and Walton's Drug Store. From 1853 to 1860 he was listed at the southeast corner of Third and Market Streets, probably the same as 100 Market Street. He authored Pastel Portraits on Solar Enlargements and Crayon Portraits on Solar Enlargements. Embossed on the velvet liner of a case, "E. Long/St. Louis, Mo." He died January, 1898 on the streets of Quincy, Ill., his home town.
