The Beardsley borthers
In early April, 1861, Jefferson Beardsley and his brother, George F., purchased the Photographic Rooms of B. G. Jayne & Co. at No. 94 Owego Street. They promised to make “it the most attractive Art Gallery in the State” offering portraits “perfect in every detail of likeness and expression.”65 By the middle of summer, the Beardsley Brothers pledged "themselves to take pictures cheaper that they have ever been obtained in this place." They offered Ambrotypes in cases for 13 cents and Photographs for only 5 cents. These prices were in effect until the following October. The brothers may have hoped for a significant increase in the volume of their business to justify these very low prices.66 They were apparently very successful in their marketing as witnessed by the following comment in the newspaper:
We made an attempt on Monday to visit them, and did actually succeed in forcing our way through the crowd of anxious and appreciative picture-seekers, who entirely blocked the stair-way leading to their rooms. We found six operators working as for their lives in the effort to supply the crowd with portraits, and in this labor were constantly employed from sunrise until sunset.67
