Please visit my WordPress site on the forgotten lives behind old photos at www.dyingcharlotte.com.

Rule clarification: No photos after 1920. I've set that as the arbitrary cut-off date because I feel that this group is meant to showcase our very earliest photography only.Thank you continuing to add so many wonderful images. Please invite friends who are interested in this era of photography and history.

Group Description

No images after 1920.

This group focuses on antique photographs taken in the United States of America, or by American photographers travelling abroad, from the invention of photography to the end of World War One. The photographic production of the short-lived Confederate States of America (1861-1866) naturally pertains to this group.

A note regarding WWI items: all photos taken by American amateur or professional photographers in Europe during the war are fully adequate to the group, as they reflect the American perspective and photographic tradition.

Please consider visiting our twin groups:
- Early Photography in Austria-Hungary
- Early Photography in Germany
- Early Photography in Romania
- Early Photography in France
- Early Photography in the British Empire
