  • Mary Eileen Rosalie OMeagher

    Cabinet photo of woman from wealthy family. The "Carte de visite" process was quickly replaced by the larger Cabinet cards. In the early 1860s, both types of photographs were essentially the same in process and design. Both were most often albumen prints; the primary difference being the cabinet card was larger and usually included extensive logos and information on the reverse side of the card to advertise the photographer’s services.
