Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre 
French postage stamp showing Niepce, Daguerre and Arago. 
n.d. 
  
Postage stamp 
National Gallery of Canada, The Origins of Photography: The Matthew R. Isenburg and Enhanced Isenburg Collections 1840-1880 
 
LL/35413 
  
The illustration shows Arago standing and talking while Daguerre and the young Niepce are seated next to him. That scene took place on August 18, 1839, not January 7, 1839. Could the French Postal Service have possibly made a mistake?
 
This illustration was included in the lecture "The many faces of Daguerre" presented by Matt Isenburg at the Daguerreian Society Symposium (2009).
