C.C. Ellis (United States, about 1870)


Figure 1.--This CDV is a portrait of C.C. Ellis. He looks to be about 5-6 years old. The portrait is undated, but looks like it was taken about 1870, either in the late-1860s or early-70s. We might guess the late-60s, but the rounded corners and from ptinting suggest the early-70s. C.C. has an elavorate hair style with a top roll and long ringlts. He wears a button on outfit thatwa popular at the time. We do not see a collar, but he has what looks like a small bow. We are not sure just what the shoulder arrangement is. The pants were very long, but above the ankles and tapered. The stockings are striped. He stands besids an ornate table with a wheel toy horse, perhaps made by Hull & Stafford. The studio backdrop is very basic, but more than the plain wall and curtain arrangement often seen in 1860s CDVs. The studio was W.H. Moore in Marion, Ohio.
