  • Notes
    • Mackelvie Collection Catalogue (1885) Item 271
    • The Bisson brothers started in 1841. Bisson's name was found on the copper plate upon close inspection.
    • Catalogue attributed it to Louis Daguerre and gave the year 1839.
    • Mackelvie Collection Catalogue (1885) Item 836
    • Unreversed daguerreotype (ie a mirror image) and therefore early, but unlikely to date to the invention of the process in 1839.
