DescripciónSOME OF THE EARLIEST portrait photographs ever taken have been colourised for the first time this week, giving a fascinating insight into what people looked like and how they dressed over 175 years ago. The incredible set of images, believed to have been taken by legendary early American photographer Matthew Brady, show a selection of 12 portraits taken as daguerreotype images, the first ever form of photography which involved producing a single image on a silver copper plate before sealing it behind glass for preservation. Images show various people from what is thought to be 1840s New York, though none of the individuals pictured have been identified. The 1840s presented a significant time in America’s history, and the people pictured would very likely have lived through the American Revolution, and possibly even the Civil War / Public Domain / mediadrumworld.com
