Children in a schoolyard. Quarter plate daguerreotype

Lot 0005 Details

Description
The scene is a large area surrounded by fences. Everyone looks towards the camera. The children appear to have simply stopped where they were playing, rather than being formally arranged, as in so many early photographs of students posed stiffly with their teachers outside a school. There are other people in back within the fenced area, including a horse. It is only a conjecture that this is a schoolyard, but they are wearing school dress. In the background are houses and a barn of a small village.

The image is slightly light. There are some very light scratches on the surface of the plate that do not stand out.
