Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update on Diagonal Cards:
From Brett Payne
This style of card mount is very similar to those which were used for either the Pocket Kodak camera, produced from 1895, or the early Kodak Brownie series, produced from about 1900 onwards. I estimate a date of around 1895-1905 for this particular example.

  1. Good looking guy. Did no one wear glasses back then? And speaking of back then, would you say this photo is circa 1890-1895-ish or is this slightly more recent?

  3. Iggy, It could be 1890 to 1900..there isn't much to go by to date the photo..I wish I could find out when these diagonal photos were trendy! :)

    Hi Patsy, I hope someone shows up for them..research is kind of one dead end after another..and their names are not real unique..but worth a shot! :)
