Based on Daguerreotypes taken by Baltimore photographer Harvey R. Marks (1821-1902), who had photographed the shipwrecked Japanese crew of the Eiriki-Maru while they were being kept in San Francisco on board the Polk. Based on the available evidence Terry Bennett has proposed that the "daguerreotypes were taken in San Francisco some time between 17 February 1851 and 13 March 1852. It is more likely that they were photographed in 1851, given their general unkempt appearance."
