Sixth plate daguerreotype of chortling girl, mat imprint for William Stroud, Norristown [Pennsylvania], ca. 1850. In half case, light applied tinting in blush.   ( Inventory# ia504 )

What did the daguerreotypist do? Its very uncommon to find such an impish bundle of merriment captured in the 19th century daguerreotype.
