Cased photograph collection

Identifier: CSPH

There are roughly 550 cased photographs in this collection, with the majority being daguerreotypes and tintypes. A majority of the items are portraits or group portraits. Due to the nature of the cased photograph (fixed onto copper, glass, etc., as opposed to paper), names and dates of the sitter do not typically accompany the photographer.

Dates: 1759-1945
