1860's Civilian Brass Band W/ Musical Instruments Card Mount Albumen Photograph For Sale

1860's Civilian Brass Band W/ Musical Instruments Card Mount Albumen Photograph

Rare and wonderful, 1860's larger size, Card Mount Albumen Photograph of a Civilian Band with their musical instruments. This wonderful, original Photograph measures approx. 7 3/4" by 6" and is mounted on its original, light weight, photographer's card mount (mount is trimmed close to the edges of the Photograph).


This outstanding Photograph pictures 12 members of a Brass Band with 9 of the men holding various brass Wind Instruments, one with a base drum, one with a tenor drum and one with a pair of cymbals. The Photograph is neither dated nor identified in any way but the thin card mount is typical of the early to mid 1860’s.


All of the musicians are dressed in singularly civilian garb and there is not even a military type frock coat to be seen. Although all of the men appear to be of the proper age to have been serving in the military during the Civil War, this band has no connection to the military and is a Musical Ensemble of some sort. If anyone recognizes this Band we would greatly appreciate hearing from you.


This fascinating, 1860’s Brass Band Photograph is in good to very good condition. The Image and the thin card mount have a central, vertical crease as can be seen in the scans below. While the focus is sharp, the contrast strong and the tonality rich, there is damage along the top edge of the image (in the blank area only) and the card mount is trimmed to or close to the Photograph on all sides. The Photo itself has had the corners cut likely to facilitate an earlier framing in an oval, Victorian Walnut frame. Although the Photograph has physical faults it will display nicely with a quality matting and framing.


A rare and fascinating, 1860's larger size, Card Mount Albumen Photograph of a Civilian Band with their musical instruments and, with all faults, still a fantastic addition to any collection!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.
