Marie Schneidler, ca. 1840s


Daguerreotype of Marie Schneidler (daughter of Friderike Wilhelmine Schneidler, nee Behrens), ca. 1840s

She sure looks grumpy. Maybe it was cold in the studio and the padded cape was not enough to keep her warm. She is also squinting her eyes, which you see often in early photographs. As if she is not trusting the photographer.
