A young lady stands before the camera with one arm resting on a table upon which rests her bonnet. The remains of a revenue stamp on the back of the mount dates this carte de visite to 1864-1866, which was taken by Elrod Bros. of Lexington, Ky. Her name is lost to history, and it is not known if she had brothers who may have fought for the North and South.
In this carte de visite by I.B. Webster of Louisville Kentucky, four smiling children pose for the camera operator. Their names are written in pen on the cardboard mount: B. Lewis, F. Shively, J. Camp, M. Camp
