Sixth Plate

SKU: D19-230 Category:

LEANING ON BLUE. Sometimes people who were daguerreotyped on resealed sixth plates wore clothing closely resembling current fashion and/or had 21st century hair styles. This adorable little lass could have left a salon chair and walked out of the haircutter?s here in Exeter with her new hairdo and fit right in with the summer sidewalk crowd. But . . . she didn?t since the child was taken at the turn of the 1850 decade. All those minuscule white specks are seen more vibrantly in my scan. There is one teeny green erosion upper right against the brass mat and a faint brown dot on the child?s tinted forehead. The nice leather case is apart.
