1864 A.P or Andrew Vandewart CDV Photo, Wolcott, Wayne County NY


On reverse: "A.P. Vandewart" is handwritten in early period pencil script. Photo type: CDV Carte de visite Photograph. Age: 1864-66. Photographer: C.H. Ravell, Wolcott, NY, Wayne County (known to be Charles Ravell, Charles H. Ravell, listed as a daguerreian in census records, born in England) 

This is a great image of a man in his thirties, a very clear and crisp close up. In 1864-66 the US government taxed photography to help pay for the American Civil war. Revenue stamps were placed on the back of photos, and hand cancelled by the photographer. This CDV has a green cancelled 3 cent revenue stamp.

I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both.
