Civil War Era Couple CDV

Here's a young Civil War era couple - don't they look very formal.  This is a CDV (Cartes de Visit) photograph.  They were photographed by Nick & Knecht, Excelsior Traveling Artists.  Note the Civil War revenue stamp on the back - this photo was taken between 1864 and 1866.


  1. All these photos are great. I always feel sad when I see orphan photos in stores. Thanks for posting these. The civil war couple makes me wish they were my ancestors.

  2. too bad there were not any other clues as to who they were.
