Daguereotypes

The Daguerreotype process, a photograph taken by an early photographic process employing an iodine-sensitized silvered plate and mercury vapor, was the first publicly available photographic process, and for nearly twenty years it was the one most commonly used.

Stereoviews

a technique for creating or enhancing the illusion of depth in an image by means of stereopsis for binocular vision. The word stereoscopy derives from Greek στερεός (stereos), meaning ‘firm, solid’, and σκοπέω (skopeō), meaning ‘to look, to see’.

CDVs

The carte de visite (French: [kaʁt də vizit], visiting card), abbreviated CdV, was a type of small photograph which was patented in Paris by photographer André Adolphe Eugène Disdéri in 1854, although first used by Louis Dodero.

RPPCs

A real photo postcard (RPPC) is a continuous-tone photographic image printed on postcard stock. The term recognizes a distinction between the real photo process and the lithographic or offset printing processes employed in the manufacture of most postcard images.
