Richard Henry Dana, III from My Daguerreotype Boyfriend.
Every once in a while, we come across fun history photo blogs that we want to share. First on our list is My Daguerreotype Boyfriend, which despite its fluffiness, has wonderful photographs from the 1860s to the 1920s. The July 1, 2013 post features Cambridge’s famous Dana family in the photograph of Richard Henry Dana, III, son of the famous memoirist Richard Henry Dana, Jr. Richard, III married Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s daughter, Edith – thus creating a Cambridge dynasty.
We also recently stumbled across Retronaut.com – as in someone who flies back to an earlier time. Unfortunately, Cambridge has yet to be featured. Users can narrow the photos by decade and by subject; and curate their own photographs – so maybe we’ll see Cambridge represented soon!
