A crisp carte-de-viste, probably 1864. Signed on the back, "Compliments of G.P. Taylor," and is noted below the image to be "Taylor."
Also imprinted on the reverse of the CDV is "Bowdoin, Taylor & Co., 204 King, cor. Columbus Street, Alexandria. Va." This firm was only listed at this address in 1864.
There appears to be no question that the G.P. Taylor pictured is the Taylor in the firm. Also compares favorably to the other image from the same firm of J. Wheeler. Rare, and in Excellent condition. $400.00
