Daguerreotype of Hahnemann, Rue du Cherche-Midi, Paris 30 September 1841

Photographer: H. Foucault, Paris

It was a dark rainy day, with violent gusts of wind, all which circumstances by increasing the difficulty of taking the photograph, have given the countenance of Hahnemann an air of stiffness.  Hahnemann was, moreover, rather unwell that day.  T. R. Everest
