Edison Cabinet Card


Recommended Posts

I haven't run across many Edison cabinet cards. Here is one I recently obtained - looks to be early. The seller claimed it was from 1890 but perhaps it is earlier?

That photo was originally taken on November 22, 1884, by a photographer named Falk. It was distributed widely for many years thereafter.

 

Here's a large format signed version of the same image that I used to own, a bit faded unfortunately.
