144 Year Old Bit Of Card And Paper


CdV UNKNOWN MAN (April 1862) - (1607B58)

A Carte de Visite of an unknown man in a studio setting. The card is quite plain and unmarked on the reverse which points to an early date. Indeed a date is hand-written on the reverse - April 1862. That means this little bit of card and photographic paper is 144 year old!

  1. And look at that casual pose; what message was this broody young man sending to those he ‘visited’?
