The detailing on this photos is immaculate for early photography and we adore the craftsmanship of the photo plates as well.
For the few families that were able to afford and take these photos, they are true family heirlooms.
These photos showcase much of the style of the 1800s through the lense of a black and white camera.
We love the ornate details of the fashion from this era, especially the collars.
The unique shapes of the photo plates are full of detail and very true to Victorian era style.
