The Wizard is simple — you just have to peruse the multiple choices and click where appropriate. How Does the Wizard Work? The majority of card mounts were produced by a limited number of stationery printers who then customised them for a particular photographer by adding name, address, patrons, medals and various other individual requirements. Therefore, a particular design of card mount used in Manchester would be used at approximately the same time in York and Brighton as well — in fact countrywide. Many characteristics were short lived as new mount designs and features were constantly introduced by the printers to encourage photographers to buy more mounts so as to remain up to date and in fashion. Some card mounts were produce by local printers and may not conform to the styles of the national providers. If it does not do so, because your photograph is one of the exceptions, we will custom date it personally for you at no extra cost.

History[ edit ] A photograph of a wedding party probably from the late s to s. Note the black or dark-colored wedding dress, which was common during the early to mid th century. The carte de visite was displaced by the larger cabinet card in the s. In the early s, both types of photographs were essentially the same in process and design.
However, later into its popularity, other types of papers began to replace the albumen process. Despite the similarity, the cabinet card format was initially used for landscape views before it was adopted for portraiture. Some cabinet card images from the s have the appearance of a black-and-white photograph in contrast to the distinctive sepia toning notable in the albumen print process.
These photographs have a neutral image tone and were most likely produced on a matte collodion , gelatin or gelatin bromide paper. Sometimes images from this period can be identified by a greenish cast. Gelatin papers were introduced in the s and started gaining acceptance in the s and s as the gelatin bromide papers became popular.

It was tucked in with the photo which I entitled Granny and her Grands, so I wonder if she is the girl in the photo. Following is my summary of everything I know about the Streeter family.
The carte de visite (French: [kaʁt də vizit], visiting card), abbreviated CdV, was a type of small photograph which was patented in Paris by photographer André Adolphe Eugène Disdéri in , although first used by Louis Dodero.
While I have been selling a broad spectrum of vintage photographs, of late I have concentrated more on images, CDVs and tintypes, from the Civil Era of the s. And of late I have taken flak from another user who is a self-proclaimed authority on the civil War and, now, on nineteenth century clothing. He has caused the recent removal of two of my listings, the last within two hours of his email to me – apparently he has become the guru of the subject as for as eBay is concerned.
In the last case I had a nice image of two small boys in Zouave outfits with Kepis. No back mark, but the albumen photograph was mounted on Bristol board which was only used by photographers in the s. In addition, the image itself, with the quality and with the photographer’s accessories, was clearly from the s. And apparently this was sufficient for eBay not only to remove the item but to require me to take their tutorial on prohibited items.
If this other user had been correct as to the shoes then clearly the image would have had to date from the s. As the late authority on carte de visites, William C. Darrah, has noted it is fairly easy to date all CDVs with just a few years, primarily based on the mounts which in this case clearly pointed to the s. In which case this supposed authority on nineteenth century clothing is discredited. But tell that to eBay, or rather, say your breath. As we all know users cannot speak directly with the Trust Department, and with good reason – they often cannot support their actions.

A carte de visite can usually be dated to within two years through an understanding of it’s features. Gallery operators replenished their supply of card stock about every six months and card manufacturers encouraged this demand by brining out a new line of decorative cards each year. Because of this constant change, a card mount offers the best clue to when a carte de visite image was made.
Since I’m no fashionista, I turned to websites such as Family Chronicle, which also has published two books on dating photos, for help in matching styles with a particular era. Consulting experts such as Maureen Taylor, whose website includes a blog and provides teleseminars, are also a good resource.

Sunday, 26 February How much is an old photo worth, and how long IS a piece of string?? These two questions go hand in hand although the latter seems to be an easier one to answer. I buy my photos the old fashioned way, by door knocking established areas and simply asking to purchase old albums and odd black and white photos. Now I can continue down the list, but you can tell we are talking about art, not so much the photo. As for the artsy stuff, I have to agree, but as far as images of famous historical people, or images of historical importance, the odds are higher than you think.
Ebay has been the go to hub of collectors for years now. A few years ago I had the privilege of selling one of my photos to a Texas museum after uncovering the man in question was in fact Buffalo Bill Cody. Who would of thought that pictures of men with beards, tricycles, fishing rods, aeroplanes, cows, beach gymnastics, would all have a dollar value.

John Algoe of the 10th Michigan Infantry. He enlisted in the 10th October 21, and was discharged March 8, for wounds received at Jonesboro. Michigan State University has a letter from Alex. Campbell of the 10th where he writes about visiting Algoe in the hospital and describes the visit as such, “Allen and I went to see Lieut. Algoe who is here wounded. He had his right under jaw shot away by a minie ball. It has been a very painful wound but he is not nearly well and will probably be home in a month or so, poor fellow.
His Country owes him and other wounded heroes a debt she never can repay”. He enlisted in the 11th December, and was mustered out in September, as a Corporal. Tutewiler was wounded in action near Dallas, Ga. His full ID is pre-printed in gold ink on the reverse side.
