“KEENAN”! He was their maker when the children visited his Philadelphia gallery located at 248 South Second St. about 1852. The girl on the left was seated and she put her arm behind her friend who stood vigilantly while they were exposed on a recently sealed sixth plate daguerreotype. The child on the left remained motionless and resolute yet her companion wavered while the lens was uncapped. The spots and dots are all there. The information about Keenan was impressed on a red pad inside the complete leather case.
