Lost Faces

Clapsaddle Family Photo Album

Civil War Era Clapsaddle Family Album with CDVs (Cartes de Visites), circa 1860s.

Surnames: Clapsaddle, Gilbert, Socks, Slegel, Schlegel, Switzer, Foekler, Tawney, Gemperlen, Gemperling, Wilson, Gemberling,

Locations: Pennsylvania, Gettysburg PA, Green Castle Indiana, York Pennsylvania, Hanover Pennsylvania, Selinsgrove Pennsylvania

Types of Early Photographs

The type of photograph in an album helps to date the album

Daguerreotypes (ca 1839)

Photography in USA began circa 1839 but not many are found before 1854.

Ambrotypes (circa 1854)

The ambrotype was a glass negative backed with black material so it appeared as a positive image

Tintypes (ca 1855)

The Ferrotype process (tintypes) was introduced in the United States in 1855. It substituted an iron plate for glass and is one of a kind. No copies could be made from a tintype.

Carte de Visite or CDVs (ca 1859)

CDV stands for carte de visite. CDVs replaced ambrotypes, producing a card 2.5 by 4" CDVs arrived in the United States around 1859, on the eve of the Civil War (1861-1865). On June 30, 1864 a tax on photographs, ambrotypes, daguerreotypes and other "sun-pictures" went into effect. Tax Revenue Stamps had to be placed on the backs of photographs from that date (1864) until August 1, 1866. This helps date CDVs taken in this time period.

Cabinet Cards (circa 1870)

CDV’s were replaced in the 1870s by Cabinet Cards which were on a larger 4 by 6" card.
I am pleased to now offer individual photographic reproductions for sale! You can purchase a photographic reproduction of any family photo from my albums. I have rescued over 2500 one-of-a-kind identified family photos taken 1850 to 1900.
