Cartes-de-visite, small, professionally-made photographs on cardboard stock, remained popular in the United States from the Civil War in the 1860s through the 1880s. Many were given to friends and loved ones, but enterprising photographers also produced images of famous individuals to sell to the collecting-crazed public. Celebrities, military officers and politicians, such as Vice President Hannibal Hamlin, were popular subjects.
