About This Image
Tomlinson was the patentee for the ambrotype process for the southern district of NY on July 4 and 11, 1854. A fine sharp image. Stamped with Tomlinson's name, "Ambrotype" and patent information and in a simple (but scarce) Brady-style double-viewing case, so that the image can be viewed from front and back.
William A. Tomlinson was trained under John Plumbe in NYC during the 1840s. Thereafter, Tomlinson is listed in several city directories as both a daguerreotypist and ambrotypist. He worked in New Haven, CT (1845-46), Poughkeepsie (1846) and Troy, NY (1846-1862). During the later period, Tomlinson is also listed in NYC as an ambrotypist in 1856-57, and in Jersey City and NYC between 1859 and 1860.
