Probably Alexandria, Va, 1864
A pair of crisp cartes-de-viste, probably 1864. Both are signed on the back, "Compliments of J. Wheeler." The image on the left also has the added hand-written note on the back, "Photographic Artist"
Also imprinted on the reverse of each CDV is "Bowdoin, Taylor & Co., 204 King, cor. Columbus Street, Alexandria. Va." This firm was only listed at this address in 1864.
It is probable that Wheeler was a photographer employed by the company, and these images are interesting studies of the photographer. Rare, and in Excellent condition. Price for the pair, $600.00
