The cabinet card was a style of photograph which was widely used for photographic portraiture from the 1860’s through the early part of the 20th Century. It consisted of a thin albumen photographic paper print mounted on a card typically measuring 4¼ by 6½ inches (108 by 165 mm). They are often confused with Carte de Visité (CDV), a similar but smaller format introduced around 1854 in France. CDV’s were very popular during the American Civil War. They tended to be much smaller in a standard 2-1/2" x 4" format. “Cabinet Card” portraits were often presented and exchanged by individuals of position, and social standing. They came to often replace the “calling card” as a currency of social exchange and introduction. They were often kept and displayed in glass “cabinets” to demonstrate acquaintance or connection in some way with the notables pictured in the portraits.
