Early, composite carte with Commodore Silas H. Stringham in center, ringed with miniature oval photographs of eight other Naval officers: Lt. Dan. L. Brain, Com. S.F. Du Pont, Capt. W.H. Ward, Capt. C. Ringold, Capt. A.H. Foote, Com. Saml. Breese, Com. T.A.M. Craven, and Com. Hiram Paulding. Probably prepared following Du Pont’s promotion to flag officer in Sept. 1861, but prior to Stringham’s retirement in Dec. of that year. Foote died in 1863 of a Fort Donelson wound. Highly unusual verso, comprising a somewhat primitive, large solid black oval with the words “Carte de Visite” in white, the whole surprinted to conceal the photographer’s imprint, “American News Co... Nassau St., N.Y.” Because the prominent date “1861” and the retirement of Stringham rendered the carte stale merchandise, the original seller probably did not wish their name associated with it. Slightly mottled.
