Washington L. Germon is recorded as working as a daguerreotypist in the early 1850s in conjunction with James McClees in Philadelphia, and continuing on his own throughout the 1860s.  Most of his addresses are recorded on Chestnut Street






Previously resealed, visible tape over tape. There is some mild scratching to the image, but most of the swipes seen on the scan are from the underside of the glass I believe. Do not want to disturb the seal so I did not open the preserver. Case has a well repaired spine, clasp is functioning. overall nice display, and with a little tending could likely be nicer.
