Original ambrotype photo of a handsome fireman. This ambrotype measures x in its original case (closed).

Did a little looking and in the 1840s "Manhattan VIII" was housed on Cedar St. near Nassau St. in Lower Manhattan. That would put it  close to where the 9/11 Memorial Museum is today. "Manhattan VIII" was disbanded in 1865 when the old Volunteer Fire Dept. was done away with. In the days when this daguerreotype was taken firemen were pretty rough customers better with their fists than they were with hose and bucket. (I find it interesting that at the time a chief's salary was $1500 a year.)
