Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division
DAG no. 251
Identified as a daguerreotype by Solomon Carvalho of a Plains Indian village in Kansas Territory taken during the Fremont Expedition in 1853, probably copied by the Mathew Brady studio. This identification was based on the fact that the daguerreotype was acquired by the Library with other daguerreotypes from the Brady studio and that Brady was hired by Fremont to copy Carvalho's daguerreotypes on wet plate negatives.
