OPENING OF THE FAIR.

LONDON, Thursday, May 1, 1851

 
   . . .Yet there are many good things in the American department. In Daguerreotypes, it seems to be conceded that we beat the world, when excellence and cheapness are both considered—at all events, England is no where in comparison—and our Daguerreotypists make a great show here.
