Daguerreian Society


On this day (July 22) in the year 1854, the following two items 
appeared in the "Boston Daily Evening Transcript":

  DAGUERREOTYPE EXHIBITION IN SPRINGFIELD.
Messrs. Southworth & Hawes will next week offer our friends in 
Springfield, a rare treat in the way of pictures.  In connection with a 
free display of likenesses, views, &c., they will exhibit their new 
Parlor and Gallery Stereoscope, filled with their "Patent Stereoscopic 
Daguerreotypes," being a combination of mechanical skill and sciences 
with the fine arts, apparently representing the solidity of marble, and 
the perfection, relief and distance of objects as seen by the eyes in 
nature.  We need hardly allude to the gold and silver medals awarded 
them at the late Fair in Boston, as their fame must be wide-spread in 
this connection, and the thousands who visited it can testify the 
gratification which their share in it afforded.

Boston for many of the Boston-area texts I have used in DagNews 
messages.  We are all beneficiaries of his indefatigable research!)
