Collins, Thomas P.-Cased Images

50138.

Sixth-plate daguerreotype by Thomas Painter Collins, Springfield, Mass. Collins was in Springfield only in 1853, which dates this image. At the time he was partnered with Otis Cooley but he kept his name on the images he made. The partnership did not work out. Collins made a CDV of Frederick Douglass in 1863. This great image is of a fireman holding a spanner wrench in an interesting pose.
