There is something mysterious about a vintage photograph, something to love and to cherish. Old cabinet cards are a key to past times and every picture having its own history and many have a beautiful romanticism about them. Quite often we won’t know the history or story of each photograph, but it’s wonderfully simple to be swept away to past times when imagining what life was like at the click of that camera.
This distinct vintage style of photograph by Windsor and Bridge was first introduced in London in 1863, the cabinet card is a photographic print mounted on heavy board or card stock. There is usually an embossed imprint or logo on the board giving credit to the studio where the photo was taken. The Cabinet card earned its name from its display in parlors, especially cabinets without any framing, and was a popular style for family portraits.
