BOBBLE HEADS! Ma grabbed Pa's arm for support! Although their maker asked them to concentrate on remaining motionless while his lens was uncovered both subjects moved! Their daguerreotypist wasn’t the sharpest blade in the box so to speak, but then again the loving couple wouldn’t have known that they were receiving a sub-par sixth plate. Some polishing marks are visible at certain angles and one mold spider’s near the woman’s head doesn’t disappear! I wonder if their daughter was lurking behind the edge of the backdrop? "Will Mrs. Price . . . . her friend Lens" was written in the bottom of their separated leather case.
