1864 Ann Taintor Johnson Civil war era CDV Photo, Troy NY & Windham CT


Johnson & Taintor Genealogy 1864 Civil War era Photo of Ann Taintor, wife of James M. Johnson, Windham CT Ann Taintor. Vintage Victorian CDV Photo: Lost Family Photo #575:

On reverse: "Mrs. Ann Johnson, Mrs. James M. Johnson, Ann Taintor, Windham, Conn." is all handwritten in ballpoint pen by the same shaky hand. Photo Type: CDV Carte de Visite, 1864-66, Civil War era. (Note: 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 "cancelled" by the photographer. CDV's with revenue stamps are collectible in their own right for stamp collectors and vintage photography collectors. It is a wonderful way to date a Civil War era photograph. This CDV has a revenue stamp cancelled with a rubber stamp by Arthur Cobden, the photographer)

Photographer: A. Cobden, Troy, New York, Albany County, Rensselaer County. (known to be Arthur Cobden 1833-1878). He was born in London in 1833 and died in Utica NY. He is known to have originally worked in NYC as an ambrotypist in the early years, and later as a CDV photographer.

Note: Windham County is in Windham, Connecticut. This photo was found in New York, Schenectady County NY. A beautiful piece of Civil War era portrait photography. She wears amazing ringlets in her hair. Troy, New York was a bustling and very successful high Victorian town in the 19th century. 

Size: 2.5 by 4 inches

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.
