Product Description

Civil War CDV of a young girl titled "Morning". It is the typical CDV size of 4" x 2 1/2", with trimmed corners....common for the era for insertion into an album. The girl has long hair with a thin veil blowing in the wind. She is also wearing a flowing type gown, exposing her thigh and the top being very low cut. These types of CDV's were sold to the soldiers by the regimental sutlers. To avoid any problems with the Christian Commission or the Sanitary Commission, they would claim they were "art" and nothing pornographic. For the time, an image such as this was really revealing.  

The printing on the bottom of this card is "G.G. Fish, Pinx. / J.P. Soule Photo. / Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1863 by John Sowle, in the clerks office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts. / MORNING / Published by John Sowle, 14 Summer St., Boston". A nice piece to include with a display of a soldiers personal effects.
