Curational comment from "Dawn's Early Light: The First 50 Years of American Photography", October 20, 2011 - May 4, 2012, Hirshland Exhibition Gallery in Carl A. Kroch Library, Cornell University
 
In Brady's lavishly appointed New York gallery, visitors not only sat for their own portraits, but also saw Brady's portraits of the great men and women of the day. Soon after this article appeared, the invention of albumen paper and the cartes de visite permitted Brady to sell copies of his portraits to the public. Brady was poised to take full advantage of the technology that would soon revolutionize photography.
