      Any information about the equipment used? I ask because that lens seems to have done a pretty amazing job (not to mention the chemistry.)

      www.antiquecameras.net/18481875advertisements.html shows some examples of what Porter might have used (and gives a glimpse of the state-of-the-art for photographic equipment in that era.)
