Discover the sensationalism of photography in the Victorian era through photographs from the collection of Historic Beverly. Explore ambrotypes, carte-de-visites, cabinet cards, daguerreotypes, stereoscopes and tin types that not only show the growth in popularity of photography at the time but also connects Beverly to an artistic medium that we rely so heavily on today with our smartphones  cameras and Instagram.
