There has been some great discussion on this board regarding 19th century photos.

 

I bought this photo as part of a group, but realize I don't knw a lot abut it.

From my baseball card collecting days I recall Cabinet cards were made of the heavy cardboard this one is made of, but I recall baseball cabinets came out in the 1880s and 1890s, well after the civil war.

 

With no identification of the photographer on the front, is this still considered a cabinet card?  Are CDV's ever made of heavy cardboard?

 

Could the photography studio have printed this photo from a negative made during the civilo war?

 

Does the uniform give us any clue as to when this soldier served?  What else can we learn?  Thanks for the help.

HELP: R.A. Pub. Co. Ltd. London, E.C.4 (Royal Academy of Arts?) Old book, looks like for a child "Gulliver's Travels". Only mark is on the last page: RA Series, The Seal of Artistic Excellence, Book No. 165. Many full page full color prints. I can't find any like this.
