East Side – West Side, South Bay

myster6use

This tinted 1851 daguerreotype was taken toward the Bay from where the Hills Brothers Coffee Building is now. Whose silhouette is in the photo? Was it a friend of the photographer, or a lady from the period, maybe? Was it added in later? I can’t find out. Below, is the same view today. Oh well, maybe someday people will wonder who the girl in my photo was! (Thumbnail image)
