New Digital Resource

The American Antiquarian Society has recently announced that its entire collection of daguerreotypes (as well as their cases) has been scanned and made available online. The notable holdings include images of Edgar Allen Poe and Clara Barton, and a few mid-nineteenth century scenic views of San Francisco.

The daguerreotype above represents the B & M Railroad Station at Lincoln Square in Worcester, Massachusetts, c. 1855-60. To view the collection, click here.
