The 
Daguerreian Society


On this day (November 1) in the year 1856, the following advertisements 
appeared in the "Public Ledger" (Philadelphia; Vol. XLII, No. 36.) 
Today's group of brief items demonstrates the demise of the 
daguerreotype and its supplanting by both paper photography and the 
ambrotype.
