Back in the 1970′s Irving Pobboravsky took three daguerreotypes of his next door neighbour’s family. The plates are now treasured objects of the family so Irv was asked to scan them for the family website, they also now appear on his gallery page.
The first was of Marvin and Patricia Parker in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary. Patricia wore her wedding dress for the daguerreotype and it was made on July 9th, 1974.
The next daguerreotype was of Patricia’s parents made on May 2nd, 1976. George and Marion Gantert. The third daguerreotype is of Patricia and Marvin Parker’ sons, from left to right: Kevin, Martin, Michael and Stephen Parker, July 3, 1977.
