Abstract

Photograph of woman seated in a framed in pocket case circa 1860-1870.
The daguerrotype was the precursor to photographs and they were very popular during the 1840s.

This daguerrotype may possibly be of Sophia Lee Archer nee Mattinson, who was born in 1809.
She married John Lee Archer, the Colonial Engineer and Architect, in 1833 aged 25.

Pocket case constructed of wood frame, covered in embossed leather. When opened, it has one photograph in a frame made of brass and on the back side of the door a blue velvet embossed pad. Case is hinged with leather and closed with two small latches. Bequeathed by John Murray Harrisson, great grandson of John Lee Archer, 1941. RS.123/17
