Ambrotype of a Fireman in Helmet Reading "Franco-American 8",

sixth plate size in full pressed paper case. An image from the time when belonging to a fire company was also very much a mark of one's social standing, this a typical example of a well-heeled member. He projects a casual and confident air, as he drapes his arm over a bamboo-turned Windsor-style chair.
