1860's Kate Kannel CDV Photo, Rockford IL Photographer Mrs. AA Rhodes


A beautiful old period signed CDV photo. This family photo is trimmed on top and bottom edges, usually to fit into photo albums, as many were. Does not affect her image in any way. Uncommon, as it was taken by a 19th century female photographer, Mrs. A.A. Rhodes of Rockford, Illinois.

On front: "Kate Kannel" is handwritten in old period pencil, see scan. Photo type: Original Vintage Victorian Carte de visite Photograph. Photographer, her photos marked: Mrs. A.A. Rhodes, Photographic Artist Parlors, Rochford, Winnebago County, Illinois, notice the printed misspelling of Rockford. (known to be photographer Mrs. Augusta A. Rhodes, who worked in Rockford circa 1865-1866. We believe she attended the Rockford Female Seminary in 1866, but can find no further record of her, any help is greatly appreciated, email Debra here.)

       This photo was found in Berkshire County Massachusetts, and is a beautiful soft tone image of Kate, who appears about 14-20 years old, born in the 1850's. We have also included a large image of the signature. We feel Kate may be of the Irish Cannall, Kannell, Kannel, Cannell clan of Rockport Illinois. The spelling of their name seems to morph over time. Was she Robert's sister? Is it possible she attended the Rockford Female Seminary and was friends with the female photographer Augusta Rhodes? Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here. A beautiful old Civil war era Rockford photo.
