I’m down to my last carte de visite in my collection so looks like I will have to buy more. I sacrifice greatly for my 10 readers. (Tongue in cheek-you know the hoarder in me just wants more-more! I tell you-more!)
The last one is of a couple. Perhaps a wedding photograph? That jabot is a beauty isn’t it!
To get a date for this carte, I will say the hair style is earlier than 1880’s. The dress looks to be Natural Form, which is 1877-82. The very thick boarder on the card stock itself was a common feature of cartes between 1877-80. So best guess is it is a late 1870’s carte.
A quick Google search revealed that the photographers business was taken over by a nephew in 1890 but I wasn’t able to get any firm dates about when he was in business in Bucyrus Ohio.
Hope you enjoyed!
