Catalogue Note

The ‘Harrison’ referred to on this case’s stamped velvet lining was Gabriel Harrison, who among other talents, was a painter, writer, man of the theatre, and photographer.  According to Craig’s Daguerreian Registry, he was listed in directories throughout the 1850s as operating a studio at 283 Fulton Street and, from 1852 to 1856, in partnership at this address with George Waldo Hill, of whom very little is known.
