Cartes de visite

James Jameson

Cartes de visite were popular from the 1850s until around 1900.  They were photos measuring about 3.5"x2.25" mounted on trade cards measuring about 4" x 2.5".

The photographer's name and address usually appeared on the back of the card.

The examples below show a variety of styles of photographs, and several, variations of back.  The backs keep the same logo, though it has been drawn in at least three different styles.  The backs are also printed in at least three different colours.

The first 8 cartes de visite below come from James Jameson's first studio at 50 North Pitt Street.  The final carte de visite comes from his second studio at 84 Pit Street.
