1854, rare daguerreotype in which the subjects are smiling. These pictures took so long to capture that the people sitting were usually told not to smile because their facial muscles wouldn't be able to hold the expression that long, blurring the picture. (That's also why babies, like the one here, tend to look a bit fuzzy and surreal. You try to keep an infant still that long!)

Bonnet; mid. 1850's. One difference between 1850's and 1860's bonnets was the placement of decorations. The 50s bonnets tended to have decorations at the sides and 60s bonnets tended to be taller, and have the decoration more at the top.
