Woman and child, Havana 
1855, 23 May 
  
Daguerreotype, 2/3 plate

Beurling was a Swede who operated in Havana for 5 years in the 1850’s. He had previously been in New York, as an engineer and architect. He worked for a time with John Ericsson. There is no record of any photographic activity in NY. He went to Cuba as a railway engineer, and seems to have become a photographer there.
 
Scratched on the right side of the plate is “S. F. Beurling/ Stockholm,” and on the left side “Calle de O’Reillly No. 40 and “Habana 23 mayo 1855.”
