Sixth plate daguerreotype depicting a well-dressed gentleman in profile, whose pose and facial expression suggest an air of extreme self-confidence. Dressed in a long dark coat and high-collar shirt, he has allowed himself a subtle element of flair with the addition of a polka-dotted cravat. His clean-shaven face, trimmed sideburns, and meticulously parted hair reveal the care taken in preparation for his portrait sitting. Housed in full pressed paper case, the interior of which is marked with the address of L.H. Hale, Boston, MA.
Provenance:Charles A. and Frances Swedlund Collection of Early Photography
