    I have two cards that look very much like the one pictured above. The size is 2.5×4 inches and the writings on the back are:1. Photographic Institute Lauder Brothers 32 Westmoreland St. Dublin, and 2. C. Ferranti Photographic and Art Studio Havelock Buildings. Bold Street. Liverpool. These are originals and I am wondering how I can find the value of these cards. I need to find out more about these kinds of cards, what they are called and where I can possibly market them. Thank you for your assistance.

      The cartes you mention would presumably be only worth about £1 or £2 (English pounds), unless they were photos of some well-known person or celebrity. They are known as carte de visite photographs, from the French for ‘visiting cards’. If the photographs are very good, they may fetch more. Have you thought of E-Bay?
