“The brothers Horatio H. Long and Enoch Long learned the daguerreotype process in 1842 under the tutelage of Robert Cornelius, in Philadelphia. They worked in partnership until Horatio’s death in 1851, first in Augusta, Georgia, and then as itinerants from Alabama to New Hampshire. They moved to St. Louis in 1846 and quickly established a national reputation. The Longs had high standards and pointedly advertised “No catch-penny pictures taken at this gallery.” (Keith F.
