One undated photograph of Mount Vernon circa 1858 is thought to be older; this is the earliest dated photograph. It shows the house before any serious attempts at restoration; the front roof is shored up by a series of ship's masts. Two examples traced, at the Getty Museum and Mount Vernon, and none known at auction.
