CDV of P.T. Barnum's Star Dwarf Tom Thumb & His Wife
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very interesting original Civil War CDV image. These CDV images were like baseball cards of the day. They were produced in larger quantities and sold to an eager public that wished to see what famous people of the day looked like that they had been reading about in newspapers and magazines. This one is of the famous performer Tom Thumb. Tom Thumb worked in the most famous circus of the day operated by PT Barnum. Tom Thumb was likely the most famous dwarf in the world at that time. In 1863 he married Lavinia Warren and the ceremony was dubbed "The Greatest Little Wedding". This image shows both Tom Thumb and his wife. The image is vividly clear as you can see. This is a neat piece of Civil War and circus history.
