Miss Coddington

Adding this daguerreotype today (18 November) in honour of Louis Daguerre, who was born 18 November 1787. His method of producing an image on a copper plate with a layer of highly polished silver was one of the first permanent photographic methods.

 

We believe that Miss Coddington was a member of the Coddington family who owned the land at the site of the Battle of the Boyne. The image has been hand tinted, and resides in a leather case.

 

Just had to tag this one as Gorgeous!

 

Date: Circa 1852
