I LIKE HER STYLE! This gal seems as though she stepped back in time from the Roaring Twenties. How long must it have taken to make each of those curls of hair on her temple remain in place? The woman seemed pleasant enough and actually pleased to be daguerreotyped on a sixth plate that has been archivally taped. The man or woman behind the camera used a low angle to give his sitter increased prominence while she parted her perfect lips and gazed into the distance beyond the lens. Mold spiders and nice patina plus a brown spot upper left are visible. The lady is held in a complete leather case. The reflected depth is awesome.
