This well-dressed family sat for Charles L. Marston of Bangor between 1856 and 1859. Marston skillfully posed the seven sitters - a father, mother, three sons, and two daughters – to accentuate their individual personalities, expressions, and postures, creating a balanced but dynamic composition. This daguerreotype is a half-plate, the second largest size available, testifying to the importance of this image.Show Details
