Have you ever heard of the website, My Daguerreotype Boyfriend? I came across it a few years back.  It’s a site that finds vintage Daguerreotype photos of male hotties. The minute I found this site I loved it. I LOVE all the old hairstyles, clothes, and HATS.  It’s so interesting to see a photo of soldiers from the 1800’s and think that they look like they could walk into any hipster bar in Brooklyn and fit right in. And…who knew Johannes Brahms, the composer…was so HOT!
