Dad and the little girl look a little uncomfortable at the left, don’t you think? While the daguerreotypist gave the family a bit of room making their sixth plate image horizontal, dad’s wide shoulders certainly didn’t quite fit and his younger daughter made her lack of space known. Mom and the older girl performed admirably for the camera, however. The dad is resealed and in fine condition with just a bit of tarnish at the edges. It comes in a whole case that is missing a bit of leather on the bottom half.
SQUISHED ON THE SOFA.
