1890's Rosa Ehrmann CDV Photo, Germany, mother of Leopold Ehrmann USA
On reverse: "Born approx 1840, Died 1919 at 79, Rosa Ehrmann, born Brüll, Mother of Leopold, wife of Wilhelm Ehrmann" is clearly handwritten in ballpoint pen on a white sticker, see scan. Photo type: Original vintage Victorian CDV Carte de visite photo, circa 1890's. Photographer: The left corner on front of CDV has a thickly embossed photographer's advertising logo: TIETZ, Munchen, Bahnhofplatz. We found Hermann Tietz in searches, as a photographer in Munich. Karstadt München Bahnhofplatz is located in Maxvorstadt, Munich, Bavaria, Germany.
This is a beautiful German CDV photo. It was found in Hampshire County, Massachusetts from a Northeast area antique dealer. It is assumed she has American connections, possibly her son Leopold Ehrmann emigrated to the USA? Her handwritten name label on back feels clearly like a 20th century American annotation.
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)
