Man & Wife

6th plate daguerreotype

Notice the (artificial) blush on their faces. The hairdo of the wife is characteristic for this period (mid 19th century).

next episode: Louis Bonaparte


  1. What a curious way to place your arms. I wonder if he was posed by the photographer or just had no familiarity before a camera.

  2. It's indeed a bit strange, maybe there was a medical problem with his right arm?
