Vintage & Antique CDV Photos

CDV is from the French "carte de visite," or "visiting card." Around the time of the Civil War, CDV photos overtook ambrotype and daguerreotype photography in popularity. Ambrotype and daguerreotype photos produced excellent images, but were easily damaged, while CDVs were not so easily damaged.

CDVs were also less expensive than ambros and dags, and required less skill by the photographer. Thus, they became more widely available to many who could not afford the more expensive ambrotypes and daguerreotypes.

CDVs were perfect for sending photos from home to soldiers at the battlefield, or for soldiers to send home. CDVs became hugely popular with Civil War soldiers, who would seek out studios so that they could send photos home to family members and girlfriends.

CDVs are among several types of photos known as card photographs. Card photos consist of an albumen print (a mixture of egg whites, sodium chloride and silver nitrate) mounted on paper card stock. A CDV is typically 2 1/4" x 4 1/4", although they were sometimes 4" x 2 1/2".
