(Suffolk County) A stunning image of a beautiful Victorian woman, side view in ringlets by a skilled photographer.
(Historical NOTE: Edward S. Dunshee was one of the oldest photographers in the U.S., having learned it before 1840 in Burlington, VT. His first gallery was in Bristol, VT. He traveled the U.S. and Canada and then settled in 1847 in Fall River, MA. Subsequently, he moved to Rochester, NY for five years, then moved to New Bedford, RI, in 1864, where he was highly successful, particularly with ambrotypes. He was the Dunshee who produced cdvs in the 1860s at 175 Westminster St., Providence, R.I. Subsequently, he opened the gallery in Boston and then in Phila. on June 1, 1878, although he still retained the Boston gallery. Dunshee had studios in Philadelphia at 1330 Chestnut St., 1878-1895, and 4517 Frankford, 1891-1895, then established another location in Trenton, New Jersey, from Nov. 1894 until about 1901)
Both CDV photos have the same discoloration marks, as seen in scan, and were found together, as they have probably been for over 140 years. A beautiful Sweetser set!

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 set of 2 photos, not reprints. New high quality rigid sleeves are included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy this set alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the fronts and backs 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)
