1840's Louise Cole Williams Cabinet Photo from earlier Daguerreotype
On reverse: "Louise Cole Williams" is beautifully and clearly handwritten in pencil. Photo type: 1890's Dry Mount Photograph of early photo. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
This is a wonderful image. In the latter part of the 19th c. the children and grandchildren of earlier ancestors would have larger photo copies made of the early daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes and CDV photos of their ancestors by skilled photographers for genealogy purposes. This is an image of a much loved Louise, we believe taken originally, by her look and attire, in the 1840-50's from a wooden cased daguerreotype or ambrotype. It has a ghostly quality and is somewhat light in tone, although her photo is sharpened and enhanced in scans.
This old photo was found in Sheffield, Berkshire County, Massachusetts. We believe Louise C. Williams would have been born about 1780-1810, do you know her? She is wearing Victorian black and lace, and may be in mourning. A rare and beautiful Williams family image.
Size: 4.5 by 7 inches
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)
