On reverse: "George A. Noble" is handwritten and hand signed in old period dip pen ink. Photo Type: CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, circa 1860’s, Civil war era. Photographer: J.H. Willard, Westfield, Massachusetts, Hampden County. (known as John H. Willard or Jonathan H. Willard (1821–1894) Born and died in Westminster, Windham County, Vermont. Married to Eunice T. Cornish Willard. He was an early Daguerreotype, Daguerreian artist in the 1865 Mass census, and worked in CDV photos. He was later in partnership in the "Miller & Willard" studio in Westfield, before leaving the Westfield area for Easthampton MA, to Westminster VT)
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 "cancelled" by the photographer. It is a wonderful way to date a Civil War era photograph. This CDV has a cancelled revenue stamp.
Found in Navarre, Florida, Santa Rosa County. A beautiful old Civil War era CDV of a handsome man. The extensive Noble Family of the Westfield MA area were listed as the occupation of whip makers, whip manufacturers, and whip lash makers. This is a beautifully hand signed CDV photo of a handsome gentleman wearing a cravat, and a silk topped suit.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. 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. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
