[DAGUERREOTYPE-PORTRAIT] Thirteen images of the Snook family (labelled as such by later hand).
Comprising ten sixth-plate daguerreotypes (two of which are in double cases); a double case with two quarter-plate daguerreotypes; and a half-plate ambrotype. American: 1850s-1860s. Variously housed in molded leather cases, with one union case. Oxidation to some images, a number of the images of exceptional strength and brightness, some cases defective.
So far as we can determine, the Snooks were a New Jersey family. The identifying labels are in a mid-twentieth century hand; we cannot vouch for the accuracy, but assuming this to indeed be a family archive, these are a fascinating visual record of several generations at the middle of the nineteenth century.
