Mathew B. Brady
Receipt from Brady's Daguerrian Galleries
Cornell University Library
This receipt acknowledges payment of $35 for four daguerreotypes, approximately $900 in today's dollars. The document features a "View of New Gallery" that depicts a visit to the grand reception hall of the Brady Gallery. The engraved receipt served as an artistic memento of the experience and a promotional piece detailing the gallery's range of services.
