Michigan Argus Staff, ca. 1850

Michigan Argus Staff, ca. 1850 image

The oldest known Ann Arbor photograph, this daguerreotype shows the staff of the Michigan Argus, the city's Democratic weekly newspaper, circa 1850. Editor and publisher L. W. Cole (he was always referred to by his initials, even in his obituary) is in the center of the picture in black suit and top hat, surrounded by his youthful staff in rolled-up shirtsleeves.
