1870's Grandpa Selby's teacher Mr. Metcalf CDV Photo, Ottawa, Illinois


#850 Selby & Metcalf Genealogy, Ottawa, Lasalle County, Illinois:

This beautiful old original Vintage Victorian carte de Visite CDV photograph is of a 19th c. Ottawa, Illinois area teacher named Mr. Metcalf, taken in the 1870's. The CDV has a handwritten note in old dip pen ink to a child named Maurice, possibly Maurice Selby. It reads: "Maurice, This is Mr. Metcalf, your Grandpa Selby's School teacher." The photographer's backmark has a beautiful architectural advertising image of a city street scene and gallery called "Bowman's Art Gallery" in Ottawa, Lasalle County, Illinois. ((known to be photographer William E. Bowman, William Bowman, or William Emory Bowman 1834–1879)

Mr. Metcalf is a hearty and handsome man, about 40 years of age, born in the 1830-50 era. He wears a black silk cravat tied at his neck and a faint smile. This is a beautiful old Ottawa historical piece. It is somewhat light in tone, but scans are enhanced and still a beautiful old family image. It was found in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

Size: 2.5 x 4 inches
Debra Clifford Ancestorville Genealogy      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.
