Scope and Contents From the Class: This record is used to track catalogued boudoir cards not described in another collection. Boudoir cards are card-mounted photographs much like cabinet cards, but boudoir cards are more generously sized [8.5 x 5.5 inches]. The term refers to the format, not the subject matter. The format was used beginning in the late 1870s, grew in popularity in the 1880s, and use tapered off after 1900. In some cases, images created earlier may have been republished in this format. ...
Dates: Majority of material found within ca. 1880s and 1890s
