I've found a number old carte de visites in my boxes, and here are some more. Written in pencil on the back of these CDVs, "Margret Ellen Frazier," and "Uncle Phil Frazier." Stamped on the back of the Margret Ellen portrait, "LAWYER'S GALLERY 21 Fifth Street, Pittsburgh. Duplicates can be had of this for one year No. 8148 SPECIALTY: Pictures enlarged and colored in Oil." Got to be from the Civil War era. My guess is that the woman is holding a book, maybe a Bible.
