Very Early Antique IDENTIFIED 1860 Carte de Visite Outside Photo, Petaluma Calif:
Very Rare, Early Antique OUTDOOR Carte de Visite Photo of House, Ross & Ormsby Photographer, Petaluma, California
DESCRIPTION: Particularly nice, original rare antique Carte de Visite. An early outside shot which is always nice generally, and taken of a house in California, which is particularly rare. Image style and photographer's information make this appear to be c.1860.
Carte de Visite photos were popular during the Civil War, both by officers and military men, and also by civilians. Carte de Visites were the most popular format during the war years, and including military and political leaders in your CdV album was very popular. They were celebrities and this was the best way to collect them, without having the various other methods we have today.
THIS APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN A COMMISSION BY SOMEONE TO PHOTOGRAPH THEIR HOUSE! Nice shot with early picket fence, dirt road (as they all were then), and with a couple of people in front.
This one is very clear, in excellent condition. Standard CdV measurements.
PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTOS!!!
