Daguerreian Society

On this day (March 18) in the year 1850, the following notice appeared in the 
"Boston Daily Evening Transcript":

   Mr Mayall, formerly of Philadelphia, has a very attractive Daguerrian Gallery 
in the Strand, where the life like portraits of many well-known individuals are 
daily inspected.  Among Mr Mayall's latest daguerreotype portraits is a really 
splendid picture of Davenport, as Farmer Trueman, in the comedy of "Fashion."  
This has been so much admired that it is to be copied on stone, and will no 
doubt have an extensive sale.

Posted for your enjoyment.     Gary W. Ewer
