Indian Traders With Winter Clothing & Scarfs From Oswego Ny. * Daguerreotype For Sale

This interesting sixth plate came from a family in upstate New York. The only info that was given to me was that this photo shows the great-grandfather of a recently deceased woman with the last name "Wright", and that the great-grandfather was a sea captain and trader from Oswego, New York. I wish I knew more. I thought they could possibly be textile traders with Indians from the great lakes area. Daguerreotype depicts two seated men wearing heavy winter clothing, each with a scarf around their neck. The man on the left is wearing trousers that look to be made of leather as there is a very heavy seam, also he has rope or string tied around the bottom of his pants to keep snow out. Both men have snow on their shoes and the fellow on the left has some snow still on his pants. (must have been a cold studio or possibly taken by a traveling photographer) The man on the left also has something in his hand which might be a pipe. I'm not really sure what the stick like object the man on the right is holding. He also has a pouch on his side which has a similar looking textile or scarf poking out of the top. They both appear to be wearing beaver pelt hats. Image has good contrast and clarity and there are no scratches or wipes, just some slight hazyness along bottom of image. Image had original seal as seen in photo but has since been resealed with archival tape. Resides in leather case with hinge looseness.

The "Wright" is a recently deceased Dorothy Wright from Fulton, New York. Whom one of the men in the dag is the g-g-grandfather of.
