"Schoonmaker's Sun Painting" (1864)


                Who'er, in short, seeks life and truth

                    In health or sickness, age or youth,

                And need not beg "some power to gie 'em,"

                    To see themselves as others see 'em,

                Will to Schoonmaker's galleries repair,

                    And start to find their shadow there.

                If you wish to see yourselves looking better than others see you, repair to Schoonmaker's, 282 River street, and get a dozen of photographs at the low price of $1.50.

Troy Daily Times. June 16, 1864
