  1. Great show as always.

    There was one little error in Jason Sandford’s “Into the Depths of Illuminated Seas”. It doesn’t alter the story, but to those like me that really know antique photography it jars slightly. Daguerreotype’s, the type of photograph referred to in the story, are images on metal plates, either silver clad or silver plated. They can’t break, resulting in “shards”. Due to the extreme delicacy of the image, daguerreotypes are sealed in a case with a cover glass. This cover glass can break but its shards don’t contain portions of the image.

  2. Perhaps the author had in mind the ambrotype ( These were photographic images on glass that required a dark background to be seen as positives rather than negatives.
