1855 The Ambrotype

       Daguerreotypes  were Images placed on Silver coated copper plates,
       Very Beautiful, but also very costly. It may take up to two days  
        wages  to earn enough to buy one.
       The  Ambrotype came on the seen in 1855 to make it photography
        more Affordable. Instead of silver, Glass was used as  the medium.
       These vary widely in quality and few if any ever...    
        came to match the Luminescent spell and effect of a finely done Dag.
