1870's Caroline Beebe Flandreau Photo, Whitehall, Washington County NY
On reverse: "Carrie M. Flandreau" handwritten in fancy old period purple dip pen ink. Photo type: Antique Victorian Carte de visite CDV Photograph. Photographer: Barker's Art Studio, 8 Broad Street, Whitehall, Washington County, New York. (known to be Whitehall photographer James Barker, born 1845 in Vermont, listed in the 1880 US census as a photographer, age 35, living in in Whitehall, New York)
This family photo is slightly trimmed on edges, usually to fit into the tight paper Victorian photo albums, as they were. It does not affect Carrie's actual image in any way.
