ADMISSION FREE TO ALL.

The Messrs. Roor having yielded to the many urgent solicitations of their numerous friends to establish a branch of their

CILIBRATED DAGDERRIOTYPE GALLERY

AT

in this city, have been engaged for some time past in fitting up an EL E GANT SU I TE OF ROOMS

363 BROADWAY COR. FRANKLIN ST., where they shall be most happy to see all their numerous friends, as also strangers and citizens generally. The acknowledged high character this celebrated establishment has acquired for its pictures, and the progressive improvements made in the art, we trust, will be fully sustained, as each department at this branch is conducted by some of the same experienced and skilful artists that have been connected with it from the commencement.

The pictures taken at this establishment are propounced by artists and scientific men unrivalled for depth of tone and softness of light and shade, while they display all the artistic arrangement of the highest effort of the Painter.

Citizens and strangers visiting the Gallery can have their miniatures or portraits taken in this unique style, and neatly set in Morocco Cases, Gold Lockets or Breastpins, Rings, &c., in a few minutes.

Heretofore an almost insurmountable obstacle has presented itself to the production of family likenesses, in regard to chiluren. The Messrs. Root are happy to state that through an entirely new discovery of theirs, this difficulty has been overcome, as the time of sitting will not exceed two or three seconds in fair, or ten to fifteen seconds in cloudy weather.

N.B.-LADIES are recommended to dress in figured or dark materials, avoiding whites or light blues. A shawl or scarf gives a pleasing effect to the picture.

For GENTLEMEN.—A black or figured vest; also figured scarf or cravat, so that the bosom be not too much exposed.

FOR CHILDREN.—Plaid, striped or figured dresses, lace work. Ringlets add much to the beauty of the picture. The best hour for Children is from 11 A.-M. to 2 P. M. All others from 8 A. M. to 6 P. M.

Jan., '51, 121.
