Samuel Broadbent 
Portrait of an African American gentleman

Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate, hand tinted 
National Gallery of Canada, The Origins of Photography: The Matthew R. Isenburg and Enhanced Isenburg Collections 1840-1880 
 
LL/16222 
  
Samuel Broadbent had a studio on Chestnut St. Philadelphia. This portrait has "the classical Broadbent painted backdrop and the stamping naming the studio in the mat. The only ID with the daguerreotype read Minister's son. No name and I am not sure if it meant he looked like one or really was one." (Matt Isenberg, December 2006)
