Amazing CDV Image of Confederate Armstrong Shells With New Orleans Mark
Click on an image to enlarge
This is an amazing image that I have never encountered before. This is an original CDV image of Confederate cannon shells with a New Orleans backmark. The CDV images were made by applying a thin paper photo image of the famous person of the day to a heavier paper card. This made the image more durable and easier to display and also added uniformity to the size. The overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. This one shows rows and rows of the very distinctive Confederate used Armstrong patent shells. These would be a variation of the shells that are pictured and described on pages 120 to 133 of the heavy artillery shell book by Jack Bell. You can clearly see that these are Armstrong shells because of the studs on the sides of the shell bodies. In the distance of this armory shot, there is a pyramid of large round cannonballs. When you turn the card over, you can see the beautiful marking of the New Orleans photographer, T. Lilienthal who was located at 102 Poydras Street in New Orleans. This is an amzing CDV image of the rare Armstrong shells with a fantastic New Orleans card backmark.
