On reverse: "A.P. Vandewart" is handwritten in early period pencil script. Photo type: CDV Carte de visite Photograph. Age: 1864-66. Photographer: C.H. Ravell, Wolcott, NY, Wayne County (Note: Charles H. Ravell was listed as a daguerreotype, daguerreotypist in census records, he was English, born in England).
This is a great image of a man in his thirties, a very clear and crisp close up. 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 hand cancelled by the photographer. This CDV has a cancelled green 3 cent revenue stamp.

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)
