At last we have the daguerreotype photography process to give true
images of people from the nineteenth century. Barely a decade old, the
process shows the dark beauty of the subjects. This woman is barely
more than a child, showing the more youthful curls, while at the same
time she poses in clothes that attempt to protray a maturity. She still
shows her neck as she holds very still for the photographer to complete
the long sitting period. The hairstyle of youth would eventually give
way to a more austere and serious appearance as she grows older.
