Daguerreotypes by Girault de Prangey.

In 1839 the French artist and chemist Louis Daguerre invented the process that bears his name – the daguerreotype. French photographer Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey travelled extensively, producing almost a thousand of these images. Curators at the Musée gruérien in Bulle, canton Fribourg, recently rediscovered and put together a collection of 61 of these daguerreotypes showing views of Switzerland and France during the 19th century.
