Tech Tuesday: Daguerreobase

A big thank you to Facebook friend Dick Bolt for telling me about this Facebook page for European daguerreotypes.

A daguerreotype is a shiny reflective image on a silver coated copper plate. You have to hold it at a 45 degree angle to view it.  This year is the 175th anniversary of these lovely cased image.
