This CdV has been trimmed at the corners so it would slide into a book more easily but the borders reveal its 1860s origin. The “one thin one thick” border lines were in use between 1864-1869. Secondly, the size of the image is consistent with a mid 60s CdV. The smaller, dime-sized images were made generally before 1865. Between 1865-1870 the images gradually became larger until in the 1870s you see an image that fills the entire card.
The photographer used in this instance was Grammer & Perkins – opposite the Odd Fellow’s Hall – in Winchester, MD. Winchester is over 130 miles from Cumberland, where many of our previous photos in this album were produced.
