HISTORY: The carte de visite (CdV) is a type of photograph popular from the 1860s to the 1880s. The carte de visite developed from the practice of using visiting cards as a means of communication. Usually an albumen print, the carte de visite is a photograph 2.125 x 3.5 inches mounted on a card 2.5 x 4 inches. The cartes were placed in carte albums which were the forerunners of photo albums. The carte-de-visite was popularized by Parisian photographer Andre Disdéri who patented a method of taking several photographs on a single plate in 1854. Copies of cartes-de-visite of royal or famous figures were sold to the public at large.
