Description: Ready for bed, by J. P.Ball. The black daguerreotypist from Baltimore moved to Helena Montana and set up a studio with his son. They had two galleries in the city, at "The Sign of the Red Ball." Their artistry is not only shown in the photograph but also in the beautiful delicate design on the verso. It is also of note that this black photographer established such a rapport with his white clientele that he was able to make this intimate portrait of the girl in her nightdress, with her bare foot showing.
