Daguerrotype of High Elms,my great-grandfather's house near Downe, just after it was completed in August 1842. My grandfather with a cricket bat he was given for his 8th birthday on April 30 stands in front of the house. Two articles on the Daguerrotype by R Derek Wood can be found on his website, notably The Daguerrotype patent, the British Government and the Royal Society.
