This is a very old CdV from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. I think of it as one of those pioneer family photos…one where they just stepped off the wagon and went to have their photo taken.
Sadly the photo is not marked. However I found this info about the photographer and his work. During 1868 to 1870 Cartes-de –visites are printed on the verso with the statement “From W. L. Barnes Photograph and Gem Gallery Union Block, Winona.”
So this is probably one of the oldest photos I have. It is 141 to 143years old.
On the verso..how many of you have heard that term before? I had not. The back of something is called the verso, the front of something the recto..I learn something new everyday!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
