Photographic History

When I got into the taxi today, I had to ask myself, "What year is it?". Judging by the photo of the driver on his taxi license, it's 1852. The color and the image appear as if it were made with a camera from the early days of photography. Even the serious expression and clothing style of the cabbie in the photo hark back to an era gone by. I didn't ask my driver when this photo was taken, but my guess is that it was taken before cars were invented.
