You could order through newspaper ads or at local photography studios, several images of famous personalities for a reasonable amount. The CDV images were made by applying an image onto the thick paper with the overall size of a CDV image is approximately 2.5 inches by 4 inches in size. On the back of the card, it has the Portland, Maine printer marking. It is a fine original CDV that will make a solid addition to any Civil War collection.
