Early Maine Photography: 1840 to 1870

September 1, 2015

Within a year of the invention of the daguerreotype in 1839, photography found its way to Maine, creating a lasting record of the appearance of the state’s people and places during the mid-nineteenth century. Maine Historical Society will showcase its extensive holdings of early Maine photographs, which vividly illustrate life in the state during the period leading up to the Civil War.
