1870's Mrs. Lein signed CDV Photo by Photographer Henry Dippe, Chicago
On reverse: "Mrs. Lein" is handwritten in pencil. Photo type: Original Vintage Victorian CDV Carte de visite Photo. Photographer: Henry Dippe, 695 West Lake Street, Chicago, IL, Cook County.
The Lein family surname is found in Chicago history, assumed to be a German name. This is a beautiful crisp photo of a Lein family ancestor. She has hand tinted pink cheeks and a blue scarf. The beautiful hand tinting of photographs happened before the advent of color photography. This is a beautiful image of her. She appears about 15-18 years old, born approximately about 1850, a beautiful young girl. This may have been before her marriage, and possibly later marrying into the Lein family.
Size 2.5 x 4 inches
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)
