Eliza Potter [1820–?]

The photographer J.P. Ball, who owns a magnificent daguerrean gallery, has a reputation that is known in nearly every State of the Union, and he has displayed on the walls of his gallery several of the finest landscapes painted by the accomplished artist Robert Duncanson.

I am fortunate-my avocation has afforded me the opportunity to move freely about a world many free blacks can only dream of. I hope you enjoyed the opportunity to explore the Cincinnati that is rarely seen, the Cincinnati of free blacks.
