Portrait of a young girl 
1850 (ca) 
  
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate 
The Isenburg Collection @ AMC Toronto 
 
LL/11422 
  
Girl wearing dress with piece of material from the same dress pinned to opposite side of case. The colors of the snippet of material are as fresh as when the material was first made, probably since it was protected from the environment in the closed daguerreotype case. This gives us an unusual chance to see how some colors reproduce in a daguerreotype. Note the design is printed on the cloth as opposed to being woven.
 
Though not really an "occupational", it seemed the girl was so proud of the dress that she wanted to send a message forward concerning its presence in the image. (Matt Isenburg)
