British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

1/4 plate. Cased.
Tentatively dated 1847-51
Condition is poor (looks like someone has tried to clean it!) but amazing how you can scan and improve dags!
Someone has suggested a likeness to John Ruskin,but Ruskin scholars have pretty much ruled this out. So who might the sitter be?

Fantastic image, it reminds me of the old Tin plates I have from Canada.
