Photographs - The Barnum Museum

The photographs collection offers a wide array of formats that track with the development of photography itself. These formats include daguerreotypes, cartes de visite, cabinet cards, artes de visite, stereoview or stereograph cards, albumen prints, a poster with applied photographs, and “real photo” postcards. Subjects of the images include not only portraits of P.T. Barnum and his associates, but also include large format views of P.T. Barnum's homes Waldemere and Marina. The images of Waldemere feature lengthy hand-written descriptions by Nancy Fish, Barnum's second wife.
