1864 Leander Turner CDV Photo of 1840's Daguerreotype, Vermont
On reverse: "Leaander Turner" is handwritten in pencil. Photo type: Carte de Visite CDV Photograph. Photographer: Chute, 13 Tremont Street, Boston, Massachusetts, Suffolk County. (known to be Boston photographer Robert Chute)
We feel that Leaander would be born about 1810, and below is the only one we could find in New England. It is possible a family member had it copied this photo at a later date in Boston.

During the Civil War, 1864-66 the US government required a revenue tax stamp be placed on certain photographs and canceled by the photographer. This CDV has a green 3 cent tax stamp affixed, which is partially torn off.
Census records might read Leander, Leeander, Leander or Lee Turner born, about about 1810. This is an old original 1860's Civil War era CDV copy of a previous 1840-50's daguerreotype the family had. This was the rage when paper photographs hit the world. Many copies could be shared with family members and they were often copied after their death, in mourning. Leander appears about 30 ish years of age, and is very handsome. It was found in Brattleboro, Vermont, Windham County.

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)
