Cartes de visite (1860-1880) (34 scans)


The cartes de visite were invented by Disderi in 1854. This size (9x6 cm) easily became popular all around the world.

Any kind of vintage photography collection has this type of photographies as they are the easiest photos to find in the shops due to the big amount of pieces made.

Cabinet Cards (32 scans)


This kind of photos were the substitute of the Cartes the Visite during the 1880's due to their bigger size (14x10 cm). Their life span in the markets was very short as many different formats for portraits appeared shortly after. As in many of the cartes de visite, these photos have at their back the name of the photographer along with the prizes won on international competitions.
