1860's Civil War era CDV Carte de Visite Photo of Uncle James Crosby
On reverse: "Uncle James Crosby" is handwritten in old dip pen ink. Photo Type: Victorian CDV Carte de Visite Photograph, circa 1860's, Civil War era. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
A beautiful Civil War era CDV photo of a handsome and strong looking gentleman, about 45-50 years old, born about 1810-25. It was found in Greenfield, Franklin County, Massachusetts MA. This family photo is slightly trimmed on edges, usually to fit into the tight Victorian paper photo album sleeves. It does not affect his actual stunning image in any way. A very clear portrait. If we had to guess, we would say he was a judge, politician or lawyer. A beautiful piece.
Size: 2.5 x 4 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)
