This is an amazing hand colored photograph of a distinguished gentlemen. Take a moment and look at the pictures, the details on the gentleman’s face is wonderful. The portrait was created on October 1864. There are two 5 cent tax stamps on the back. Most photographs have a 1 or 2 cent tax stamp. This must have been a very expensive photograph in 1864 that required 10 cents in tax stamps. Tax stamps were used by the United States on luxury goods to help fund the Civil War. The portrait was made by O. H. Willard at 1206 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. Take a moment and google O. H. Willard Studios. They have an interesting history and were quite famous for selling cameras. The photo is not framed and does have some brown foxing. This is an incredible portrait and would make a great addition to any collection. The portrait is ready for framing in a period frame. The entire photograph is 8 by 10 which was quite large for 1864.
