I thought this one looked foreign, it is also a CdV or a Cartes-de-visite. They measure 2 1/2 inches by 4 inches and were popular during the 1850's to 1900's. Calling cards..I believe that if you visited someone you also left them your CdV in a bowl or basket in the foyer..pretty fancy stuff.
This is a beautiful photo, I cannot say for certain how old it is.. but the photographer was Bleasdale, at Ormskirk Rd. Preston. This would be in North West England in Lancashire.
Thanks Norkio for sharing another great photo!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
