Caleb Lyon

Gold toned half plate daguerreotype by Mathew Brady, c. 1860

A restored portrait of Lincoln-appointed Governor of Idaho Territory, 1864-1865.

Lyon proved to be very unpopular in office, with one journalist referring to Lyon as "a conceited, peculiar man, who made many enemies and misappropriated much of the public funds."

Full restoration of a heavily damaged plate, the colour scheme and mood was very much inspired by Rembrandt's portrait of Nicolaes Van Bambeek, painted in 1641 (Jordan J. Lloyd / Dynamichrome)

The Civil War in color

Painstakingly remastered images of a divided America that recreate era in amazing detail. (Jordan J. Lloyd/Dynamichrome)
