Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Hello, I am seeking information about this leather case, marked Lock & Whitfield, 178 Regent Street. It looks like an average daguerreotype case, but the size is very large, and doesn't seem to correlate to known sizes.
The exterior is 18.3cm x 15.8cm. (7-1/8 x 6-1/4 in.)
The glass inside is 16.5 x 14 cm. (6-1/2 x 5-1/5 in.)
I know Lock and Whitfield…Continue
I have searched the National Portrait Gallery, The Science Museum, The Getty, The Met collection, etc. , to no avail.
There doesn't seem to be a complete database of these anywhere.. Does anyone know who this is?
