Fine Pictures

The Marietta Register, April 27, 1865

J. D. Cadwallader took last week, two very fine photographic pictures of large size - one of the steamer Wild Wagoner, as it was lying, covered with people, at our wharf; the other of Front street, looking up from the bank of the Ohio.  These pictures have attracted considerable attention, and many persons are obtaining copies.  They are taken by C. C. Harrison's "Globe Lens," recently patented, by which objects in the distance shown in a picture, are as distinctly marked as those near by.

Mr. Cadwallader will soon have a series of views taken in and about Marietta, which it will be an object for many persons to possess.
