Below is the slideshow that was to have been presented before the lecture: “Philadelphians’ Interest in Silhouettes, Miniatures, and Daguerreotypes, 1760-1860” by Anne Verplanck, independent scholar and curator, on February 24, 2010. The lecture was co-sponsored by the American Philosophical Society and The Library Company of Philadelphia.

The Library Company of Philadelphia also recently exhibited “Catching A Shadow: Daguerreotypes in Philadelphia, 1839-1860.”
