1860's Dr. Theophilus Fischer MD Civil War era Tintype, Philadelphia


#412:

On reverse: A printed paper sticker reading "Theophilus Fischer, P.M., M.D." Photo type: Original Vintage Victorian Tintype Photograph. Photographer: Trask, 159 N. 8th. St., below Race, Philadelphia, "Finished in fifteen minutes." (known to be photographer Albion K.P. Trask 1831-1900, or Albion Trask)

Found in Public Genealogy Records:
We found evidence of a doctor and pharmacist Theophilus Fischer in online searches. 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. CDVs 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.

Civil War Records:
Theophilus Fischer:
195th Regiment, Co. G Pennsylvania Infantry (served 1 year, 1864-1865)
Side: Union.

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.
