Entry by the Rue Saint-Jean. Itinerant daguerreotypists. The junior member of the partnership was Eugène "Louis" Danguy (° Auxerre [Yonne, F], 11.3.1831; + Paris [F], 14.4.1889), the senior member logically his father Louis Michel Danguy, recorded as a employee tradesman ("commis négociant") in Bordeaux [Gironde, F] in April 1849. The partners arrived in Lorient [Moriban, F] in June 1850 and were in Saint-Brieuc [Côtes d'Armor, F] in January 1851, described as "miniature painters". By June 1851, Danguy & Fils had arrived in Brussels and were advertising "true daguerreian miniatures" while announcing a stay of only a month. "The strength of their prints and the beauty of their colouring has earned the congratulations of connoisseurs in all the cities of France. Their salon will be open from eleven in the morning to five in the evening. [...] Ladies will find a hairdressing establishment in the building (L'Indépendance Belge, 23.6.1851). Messrs Danguy were again recorded as Daguerreotypists in Paris, Boulevard Beaumarchais, in 1852. Eugène Louis Danguy settled in Paris as a studio photographer at three successive addresses from 1856 to 1879. He then gave up photography and was recorded as a stage artist in 1884.
