Daguerre Memorial (1890): This bronze and marble statue by Jonathan Scott Hartley (1845-1912) features a small relief bust of Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre in front of a large globe on top of a curved pedestal base. A  female figure of Fame frames his face with a laurel garland, while another garland encircles a globe to exemplify the universality of photography. On loan from the National Museum of American History.
