In addition to our Mumler carte-de-visites shown on page 1 and the test card above we have the 3 spirit carte-de-visites shown below.
The first two are of an unidentified couple with two spirits hovering over each of their heads. We acquired them in a modern double frame and because they are mounted on similar cards and sit in the same chair we think of them as husband and wife. There is no identifying information and no photographer's back mark on the pair.
The third cdv is of a elderly woman with the specter of a bearded man appearing beside her. The backmark shows Carl Meinerth of Newberyport, Mass. as the photographer. A credit line names him the patentee of the Mezzo-tinto Photo Process in 1867. We have found no mention of spirit photography in connection with Meinerth.
