This is a website to share photos from my personal image collection. I have collected approximately 20,000+ nineteenth and early twentieth century images - primarily cartes de visite (CDVs) and cabinet cards from various sources. However, also included in this collection are tintypes (cased and un-cased), tintype button images, ambrotypes, daguerreotypes, salt prints, opalotypes, cyanotypes, stereoviews, real photo postcards (RPPC), early twentieth century postcards, and albums of various types. Unlike many other published collections that feature specific genres, this amassment is devoted to all people… and what I can afford.
Processing the complete collection to list on this website will take some time. Thus, this is work in progress.
I hope you will find this website helpful for locating images of relatives, genealogy, fashion, research, images to be used in publications, … or just good ol' curiosity!
Thanks for looking!
