Ball’s Great Daguerrian Gallery of the West

In Cincinnati, on Fourth Street, between Main and Walnut, in Wood’s large building. The great gallery, illustrated here, is twenty by forty feet. There are also two “operating rooms” in which the photographs are taken, one of them prepared especially for children and babies, and a workshop in which the plates are prepared and developed. From Gleason’s Pictorial, 1854.
