These stellar photographs were taken by Hermann Carl Eduard Biewend (1814-1888), a chemist, scientist, and amateur photographer in Germany. The photographs he took of his wife and children are remarkable for their warmth and humanity. They are also great shots of fashionable dress. These were shared on The Daguerreian Dandy-Photography of the 19th Century Facebook page.
