Leopold F. Manley 
A verse relating to "photographic art", designed to be the first carte in an album 
Carte de visite 
Stereographica - Antique Photographica 
Courtesy of Bryan and Page Ginns (#21 / 123) 
Hail to the photographic art!
Which such pure pleasure can impart
Depicting on the album's page,
From babyhood to hoary age,
The forms which our best love engae.
Hail science, hail inventive mind!
With happy skill all this combined,
To furnish forth a pure delight,
Aiding the mem'ry through the sight,
And bringing cherish'd forms to light.
