Astonishingly detailed Daguerreotype

This article (LINK) brings you to an article in Wired about the restoration and presentation of a mid 1800s photograph at the George Eastman House, and it is worth a look.

 This was shot with a simple camera, perhaps with a single uncoated lens. You can read the time on the clocktower, see people, horses and carriages, read all the signs, and more.
