 Title:  Portraits of a British merchant family in Brazil  
 Dates:  between 1845 and 1865 
 Abstract:  The collection of cased photographs comprises 32 photographs, mostly portraits of the extended Youle family, a British merchant family residing in Recife, Brazil, in the mid-nineteenth century. Included are 14 daguerreotypes, 18 ambrotypes, one tintype, and two albumen prints. While the makers of most of the photographs in the collection are unidentified, three daguerreotypes that did not originate with the Youle family were made by Fredricks and Weeks in Recife in 1851.
