1840’s Mother and Son A ¼ plate daguerreotype of a
young mother and her scowling son whom she is holding
onto so he doesn’t move. He managed to wiggle just a bit.
Contained in a full case. Upside down on the silk pad is
written "George M. 3 years." This image came from a
well known major Midwestern collection. There are a few
scattered mold spiders on an otherwise great plate.
