This photographic CDV subject is not typically encountered in this era. The woman is wearing on off the shoulder dress and her flowing hair almost looks blown back.

Some may disagree, but I find her attractive and the pose intriguing.

She was photographed by Stowe in Louisville in 1868 or 1869.

    That is striking. The pose and propping (or lack of props) is so stylized and unique for the day. I've never seen any other photo like that. By the way, what does "CDV" mean?

    Thanks for looking bdeclee.

    CDV is short for carte de visite (French for visiting card)-- which is the name of these small images. They were very popular in the US from the 1860s thru the 1890s.
