before photoshop | a picture worth a thousand moments?

Boulevard du Temple in Parijs door Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre.

A quiet street in Paris? Only a lady and the shoe-shiner seem to be on the street. Actually, Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre made this picture during a busy afternoon but since his shutterspeed was so long, you only the figures that were standing still. Paris avant le photoshop?
