About this object

A mounted carte de visite black and white studio photograph of Mr and Mrs G. Burgess and their dog.

The carte de visite was usually made of an albumen print, which was a thin paper photograph mounted on a thicker card, and would have been 'traded' or given to friends and family during the Victorian period. Albums for storing and displaying these cards were also popular. The carte de visite was displaced by the larger cabinet card in the 1880s.
