Quaker Photo Album Maulsby Family

Album #23 QUAKER-MAULSBY

Surnames: Maulsby, Edwards, Huddle, Love, Coates, Davis, Babcock, Hillman, Culin, Ford, Yarrow, Sackett

Locations: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Germany

Following are the handwritten notes under each photo, which are in two distinct hands. The first hand is in pencil, and is for the majority of the photos. The second hand is in ink and is only seen on a few of the photos. I have notated the list below to indicate if the second inked hand has written the note. My notes are in square brackets [ ] Words in curved brackets ( ) were in the original written notes in the album. When I took the photos out of the album, many had inscriptions in period handriting - very neat and beautifuly written. Some were dated. I believe these were written by Edward Burd Edwards and that he was the original owner of the photo album.

FN 1 Franz Hanfstaengl (1804 - 1877) was a German lithographer and photographer. He worked in Munich as a portrait lithographer and photographer and was one of Europe's leading photographers. Coincidentally I own a photograuver done in 1894 by his son Franz Jr. Franz Hanfstaengl Jr owned the Fine Art Publishing House which had a branch in New York City. Interestingly, Franz Jr's son Ernst Franz Sedgwick Hanfstaengl (born Munich, February 2, 1887 - November 6, 1975) was the only person known to have worked directly for both Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Adolf Hitler. There is a book about Ernst, called "Hitler's Piano Player: The Rise and Fall of Ernst Hanfstaengl, Confidante of Hitler, Ally of FDR"

FN 2 I found E. B. Edwards age 54 , Ida Maulsby age 20, Matilda Maulsby age 15 on board the ship Indiana which left Liverpool England and arrived in Philadelphia Pennsylvania on 14 October 1878. E. B's son J. Warner is not on the passenger list. To see the image of the passenger list you will need to take the Try a FREE TRIAL to view genealogy results for your ancestors.

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.
