Tessie is all grown up


Here are several images of a young Woman named Tessie. Some of the photographs below look like they were taken on the same day. Tessie dresses up for several images and the last two are with her Mother Bina.Of course I have no back story on these,was she an actor or was this just a fun day of dress up in the studio?? The image at top shows Tessie all grown up into a beautiful and sassy looking young Woman

Daguerreotype of two Women


Here is an interesting daguerreotype of two young women. A bit of a somber portrait
taken possibly in the 1850s
This was damaged missing part of the case and the image itself was not sealed that may be the reason that there is so much damage on the photo but we are left with just enough to glimpse this beautiful portrait
