Southworth & Hawes
Daguerreotype full plate box, custom made in tin
Private collection of Mike Robinson
Mike Robinson (2 June 2017)
Written in pencil on the lid in Hawes' hand "selections for copy" Written in Holman's hand "Known Men" which has been crossed out and "Groups" I believe Holman shuffled the available plates for sale in the 1930s around in boxes. He sent a box of bare plate to collector Zelda MaKay to pick and choose then return. This explains a lot of the scratches on S&H images.
