1860's Cornelius Daniels CDV Photo, Pottstown, Montgomery County, PA
On reverse: "Cornelius G. Daniels" is hand stencilled in beautiful old period Victorian script and his initials ‘CD’ also handwritten in pencil. Photo type: Original vintage Victorian CDV or Carte de Visite Civil War era Photograph. Photographer: Isaac S. Lachman, Main St. Opposite the bank, Pottstown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. (Pottstown photographer Isaac Lachman)
Note: We often see evidence of tiny thin brass stencils in the 19th century, and feel one of these was used to stencil his beautiful name in ornate script. An unusual and beautiful marking. The actual CDV card is also marked as printed by "Swan Printer, 2nd & Callowhill, Philadelphia." This is in Chester, Philadelphia or Montgomery County.

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)
