I ponder on two things. First, was he a slave owner? Secondly, does anyone really believe his claimed age at the time of the photo?

Given his living in Maine it is doubtful, but I know nothing of the whole course of his life/where he lived.

Indeed. And I doubt that claim. It is interesting that the other people who claimed to have been even older apparently are disbelieved but not him. I wonder why that is. I also find it interesting that the dispute is that other men claim to have been born before him. I suspect that there were others photographed at the same time and that they in fact may have been older.

In short. I do not believe that he was 103 years old at the time of the photography.


Cut from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conrad_Heyer#Photography
In 1852, at the age of 103, Heyer posed for a daguerreotype portrait. He thereby became the earliest-born person of whom a photograph is known to exist. The claim is not without dispute, as the following men were also photographed: a shoemaker named John Adams, who claimed to be born in 1745; a Revolutionary war veteran named Baltus Stone, with a claim of 1744; and a slave named Caesar, with a claim of 1738

He looks much better than any confirmed centenarian I recall seeing in photos or video. I know his claim is possible but believing it requires more, as I think you imply.

The earliest photo of a UNKNOWN person...

"This is one of the, if not the, oldest known photograph of a human being in existence. It depends on how one defines photograph, but this was taken by Louis Jacques-Mande Daguerre in 1838.
(The fellow the daguerreotype was named after.) This is a photo of the Boulevard du Temple in Paris. This is a busy street and there was tons of traffic, but since the exposure was so long, about 15-20 minutes, none of the moving figures can be seen. The only people visible are a guy getting his boots polished and the bootblack.
Who was this nameless gentleman or the bootblack? No one knows. I’m sure they never imagined that they had been immortalized, albeit anonymously, by a clever scientist testing his newly discovered method of preserving moments in time."




Nice - but I suspect he was trying to save the image of the young lady changing in the bedroom of the building opposite!

Further to my previous post about Oak Hammock Marsh - here is a screen shot from the live cam showing a small flock of geese on the ice - the leading edge of the migration. Most of the non-flying critters only show themselves at dawn or dusk so I didn't see any (except two people with a dog on a leash).

Anyone know what this flower is?
I don't believe it's part of the small purple flower(Wild Geranium?) plant because the smaller ones are everywhere and the large plant is the only one.

More likely an orchid of some sort.

Good way to get intel on enemy positions - bring them tea!

Does that sailor holding his pole have something to do with the superstructure ahead of him?
And how does she walk in the sandy ground with stillettos?
