Portrait of a group of plasterers
1850 (ca) Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate
Collection Matthew R. Isenburg
- Early photographs of tradesmen. Most are Daguerreotypes. The interesting thing? There are no photographs of women, only men. Apparently, women didn’t “work” back then. Or maybe it was that housekeeping, midwifery and raising children didn’t count as actual trades.
- Diet Coke turns 30. Here’s a tribute to a “dietCokeBreak” (Scroll all the way to the bottom. You’re welcome!)
- I should save this as a creative idea for Halloween costumes. Seriously, Bonnie and Clyde were criminals, murders, bank robbers. That’s a fact, but somehow, they’re romantic, too. And maybe a little sexy.
