Unidentified photographer 
Portrait of three man 
1850 (ca) 
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate 
Archives of Modern Conflict OR National Gallery of Canada 
Three men wearing heavily stained work aprons. Upon closer examination, their clothes are well tailored and the fellow in the center seems to have smooth hands that do not quite match his apron. Are these tradesmen or craftsmen dressed in their "Sunday best" with their work aprons added as a statement, or did they borrow aprons for the group portrait? (Matt Isenburg)
