Featured Foto from Lost Faces: Fisk Civil War era Photo Album

This week's Featured Photo from Lost Faces is from the Fisk Family Civil War era Photo Album. It is part of my private collection of 1800s Photograph Albums Which I rescue and publish online at Lost Faces



This carte de visite is Fisk Family Photo #14 - Mrs. Elihu Smead. It was taken ca 1870s

After some research I discovered that the album was probably owned by a child of David Fiske and Laura Severington of Massachusetts. It was probably passed on to a grandchild of David & Laura, that grandchild being the person who wrote names of individuals in the album.
