1810 ad for portraits painted by Mr. NIXON; Massachusetts

Hi,

I just posted an old advertisement for "profiles," or silhouette portraits, in which W. BACHE announces his impending departure from Salem, MA, but that Mr. NIXON will remain in Salem "a short time longer" to paint portraits. The Profile & Painting room was located over the store of Daniel JENKS.

This was scanned from an original issue (NOT microfilm!) of The Essex Register newspaper (Salem, Massachusetts) dated October 29, 1810, and you can see it online here:

I hope it's helpful!
