“THINK OF ME . . . From Harry” was neatly written in the bottom of the leather case that contains the lad’s nice archivally taped sixth sized daguerreotype. Harry must have been a serious youngster. The formality of his likeness was very impressive. Kids his age weren’t usually taken in this classic bust portrait style. A very high light source permitted pinpoint illumination on the handsome boy. Harry looked directly towards the lens, yet his beautiful brown eyes seem to have been focused elsewhere. His rounded face, crowned by a thatch of thick black hair was wonderfully illustrated. Rouge gave a lifelike appearance. Brilliant contrast and holographic depth add to his realism. Teeny white specks, a few mold mites and mat marks along the bottom of the oval mat are all faintly visible. When Harry is held just so, he becomes quite impressive!
