DAGUERREOTYPE PORTRAITS, with the latest Improvements, are artistically executed by S. GEORGIADES, late of Paris, in his Photographic Establishment, No 4 MOUND, First Door below the Panorama.

The sitters have all the privacy they may wish, and their general comfort is secured by the accommodation afforded.  The charges are moderate, being 5s 6d for the smallest size Portrait; 8s 6d for the middle size and  15s 6d for the largest size.  Family Groups are taken at a small advance from these charges.
