Unidentified Daguerreotype/ Artist 
Durham Bull, Henry Clay, Two years old, bred and owned by A. Bolmar, West Chester, Pa. 
1853, March (published) 
Magazine illustration, from a Daguerreotype

The portraits of bull and cow on opposite page, engraved from daguerreotype likenesses, are specimens of what may be attained by scientific and judicious crosses of choice native stock, with selected thorough bred Durham bulls. They are grade animals, the bull being 15-16, and the cow 7/8 Durham, and are fully equal in some points to thorough breds. They were bred and are now owned by A. Bolmar, of West Chester, proprietor of the celebrated boarding school Institution, which bears his name, and whose herd of cows and heifers, 41 in number, all of his own raising, and more or less mixed with Durham blood, have been pronounced by good judges superior as a whole to any dairy of the same number in this section of country.
