Each child held their respective head coverings when they posed for their retaped sixth plate daguerreotype. The cute kids each wore elaborate costumes when they were seated on a single small couch.

The large brown spot has some smaller companions along with a few mold mites. There is visible tarnish especially on the left side. The leather case is apart.
