Toronto. At our Fall fair last Sunday, The Daguerreian Annual 2000 was offered free at our membership booth. Sadly, few took up the offer and missed out on a wonderful soft cover book of some 280 letter sized pages.
This particular issue, besides its gorgeous pictures, and numerous articles on photography’s early years, covered two future PHSC presidents. Dr Mike Robinson (2003-2005) both wrote and displayed many images in his possession at the time. Dr Robinson is one of a handful of practising Daguerreotype photographers today.
He spoke to us on November, 2014. His studio has been a fixture in the east end of Toronto for many years. Featured in his article on “The Making of Twenty Daguerreotypes” is another PHSC president and father of a current PHSC VP, the late Bill Kantymir.
