1800s Family Photos - 30 CDVs, Cabinet Cards, Portraits
Submitted for your consideration are thirty (30) 19th century family photos; sixteen (15) CDVs, eleven (10) Cabinet Cards, two (2) Trilby Photos, two (2) Portraits and one (1) larger Photo. It's a mish-mash, representing mostly New England states (Mass, Vt and NH), with some from NYC, Albion NY and Springfield OH. Yet all came from same family estate.
Many of the photos are ID'd in hand on the Reverse, mostly in pencil. In fact, one Cabinet Card from the Heath Studio on Main Street in Plymouth NH is dated "June 1, 1870". This card depicts two young sisters who names and ages, also provided on reverse, are Alice and Ethel. Alice is 4 years, 9 months and Ethel is 2 years, 8 months. I would venture the elder woman, Mrs Mary Walker according to reverse, was their grandmother. Can't swear to it, but there's a close resemblance in facial features, and both cards were done at same studio in Plymouth NH. But there are many family notations on the backs of these CDVs and Cabinet Cards; this one's aunt, that one's grandmother, etc, etc. Again, it's a family collection.
Condition of photos varies. Some are Excellent, and some reflect a fair amount of dirt/smudges/foxing. One has a small pinhole in the very bottom edge. No shortage of nicks and bumps. One CC is a little scraped up, but it's still a great shot of what appears to be Grandma and Grandpa Duplain sitting on the porch with a smiling grandson on grandpa's knee ~ "Jos Duplain with one of the boys". Again, many are in Excellent Condition. None are trashed.
Plenty of more PICS ~ Promptly Furnished upon Request!
