A beautiful vintage photograph from an album of my grandmother. As a child already I was intrigued and inspired by photographs and photography. the stories were exciting too about travelling around the world in those days…
Not for sale.

“The carte de visite (abbreviated CdV or CDV, and also spelled carte-de-visite or erroneously referred to as carte de ville) was a type of small photograph which was patented in Paris, France by photographer André Adolphe Eugène Disdéri in 1854, although first used by Louis Dodero.12 It was usually made of an albumen print, which was a thin paper photograph mounted on a thicker paper card.
Albums for the collection and display of cards became a common fixture in Victorian parlors”
