What it is:

Carte de visite (CDV) measuring approx. 2.5 x 4.25 inches.

What I know about it:

Nothing!  Undated and unidentified.


With the special effect of the border in the image, and the gold around the edge, this is surely not one of the earliest CDVs.  I can’t place my finger on why I feel this way, but to me she looks like a woman who normally wears glasses, but took them off for this photo.

  1. Geez, I took one look at her and ran upstairs to clean my room!

  2. I feel just like her right now, and I also don’t have my glasses on.

    • Oh, no! Put your glasses on! Feel better! Actually, that’s funny, I wasn’t even thinking in terms of her lack of glasses affecting her mood, but I guess it’s possible. I was just thinking it looked like her face was missing something. Also, that she looked like she was struggling to focus on whatever she was looking at.
