My Daguerreotype Boyfriend

Where early photography meets extreme hotness

Do submit your hot photographs

A sad story, from submitter Rachel Nordstrom:
Sroam Whiffin was engaged to Susie Mallett for ten years, then the engagement was broken off for ten years. They were finally married but Sroam died just six months later! He was a watch and clock maker probably operating out of Bath, UK. This daguerreotype had been kept in a beautiful hand sewn blue velvet pouch made by Susie Mallett.  
Photographer was Antoine Claudet of London, probably taken early half of 1850’s, now in the Fox Talbot Museum collection, Lacock.
