This daguerreotype from 1852
shows a young Scottish gent in a waistcoat with a lot of color and
texture. He shows quite a bit of white shirt cuff, although if he
pulled his sleeves down to unwrinkle them it would probably disappear.
The slope of his shoulders and narrowness of the sleeve tell us the
coat could be a decade or two older than the portrait, or perhaps this
man just prefers the Romantic style.
