CDV-Minneapolis Minnesota Building
Item #: NEW-0015187

Click image to enlarge
Some staining on the edges and wear to one corner.  There is also a little cut in the bottom edge.  No backmark.  This card was a mystery to me until I was able to match the image on TinEye.com.  There was a stereo card with the exact same image and handwritten on the bottom was Minneapolis Minnesota.  Since then I have been unable to determine the name of location of the building.  After looking a hundreds of postcards of buildings in Minneapolis, I've decided that the building is no longer there.  There are signs that are visible under magnification and others that someone else's eye could read.   C F or C G Warner.  This would be a great research project for someone since it is a magnificent structure.

Albert N Webb-Bell Buckle Tn-Webb School?
Item #: NEW-0015077

Click image to enlarge
Found in Middle Tennessee. I'm guessing that this young man, whose photograph was taken in Boston was a student at Webb school in Bell Buckle.  I'm also guessing that he was related  to William R Webb who founded the school in 1870.  I accidently cut off part of the right edge in the first scan but it is intact. Photographer was Elmer Checkering in Boston.

Cabinet Card-Naval Vivandiere
Item #: NEW-0015037

Click image to enlarge
I purchased this image by Moberg in Brooklyn N Y as I was so curious as to the subject's outfit.  The image is very light, though clear.  The background is murky raising the possibility that the image was reproduced from an earlier photograph since the Vivandieres were active during the Civil War.  This woman appears to be in her 40's so it is possible that photograph was made in the 1880's to document or re-enact her role in the war.  I have been able to find images on the web that duplicate the canteen on a strap, the uniform with an apron and an exact description of the hat that she is wearing.  Note the naval insignia on her plumed hat.  There are few images of Vivandieres on the web and I was unable to find a Naval one.  

The photograph has some type of clear shield that has been placed over it.

The name Vivandiere came from France where women, often wives of soldiers furnished water and other provisions to soldiers.  The tradition was carried on in other countries in later wars, and in America during the Civil War on both sides.

CDV-Chowan Female Institute-Murfreesboro N C
Item #: NEW-0014345

Click image to enlarge
I've had this CDV several years trying to identify this building.  The photographers on the back are Harrell and Grimes N C. Harrell was not on the list of early photographers through I found a Grimes in Murfreesboro and found a copy of an old photograph which matches this CDV.  The building was dated 1870 which fits the format of this CDV.  I don't think the building still exists so this should make this image an important one.  It is in good condition.

Item #: NEW-0013473

Click image to enlarge
Please view the scan to see the condition.  As one can see the edges of the board are quite dingy and there are some spots in the right area.  The biggest black spot appears to be in the photo, not on it and I'm not sure about the other tiny spots.  The card is bowed and the back is quite discolored but it does have Giers's regular back mark.  The negative number is 368506 with the 6 marked out replaced with 4.  Page 161. The scan is somewhat darker than the actual image. The child appears to be lying on a sofa with a coverlet covering her lower part.

CDV-The Two Headed Boy
Item #: NEW-004299

Click image to enlarge
This is a curiosity. This CDV is from the 70's or 80's with a back mark of John M Clarke Photographer in New Orleans. The back is stamped "George Roehn, The 2 Headed Boy, Five Years Old." His name is also on the front. Clearly, he does not have two heads. He is holding a riding crop. Could be post operation. Needs further research.

This follow up information was furnished to me:

George Roehn was born with myelomeningocele, a variant of spinal bifida. Spina bifida, or split spine is a fault in the development of the spine and spinal cord which leaves a gap in the spine. Myelomeningocele spina bifida causes the spinal column to remain open allowing the membranes and spinal cord push out to create a sac in the lower spine. Hence, the 2nd. head not showing in the CDV.

During the 1880's George was on display at many circus events in the Midwest including J Taylor's Circus & Menagerie of Creston, Iowa. George had the "2nd head" surgically removed in 1887.
Atlanta Constitution April 23, 1887 - Dr. Willis Wesimoreland exhibited the' two headed boy George Rehn of Ohio upon whom the doctor operated several months ago. Several months ago Dr. Westmoreland cut off the head at the lower end of the spine.
