It is very seldom that I come across Cdvs from the Indian sub-continent but here’s one I found today. There are more Cartes from around the globe on my Worldwide Photographers blog.
Almost all the photographers mentioned on this blog are from my own collection (except those in ‘Miscellaneous’). This means that if you find a photographer who is of interest to you, I can scan in his trade card for you to see.
A selection of photographer’s trade cards is already available to view. Just follow the links from ‘About this Blog & photographer’s trade cards’.
There is a wealth of info. on the site, both factual and visual, so go ahead, scroll down this page and explore.
The list of named sitters is almost complete and can now be viewed, along with its accompanying images.
Any further named sitters will be listed asap.
Go - to the ‘About this Blog’ page for links to photographers trade cards, showing the diverse range of designs utilised to advertise services and studios.
Also – view a variety of photographic portraits showing family groups, fashionable women, bewhiskered men etc from 19th century Britain.
A list of ‘named sitters’ will be available shortly. (Named sitters are quite rare and only occur when a name, and sometimes a date or address, has been inscribed on the reverse of a photograph.)
The names of all the photographers, from the British Isles, in my collection of cartes de visite photographs are now included on this site.
In some cases, the dates when the studios were in business are not yet known. I will add dates for these as, and when, they become available
The list of my collection of 19th century English photographers is now complete. Scottish, Welsh and Irish ones will soon be added (but there aren’t many of those).
Still to come – trade cards & photos etc
