This old carte-de-visite is from the 1860's time frame from the studio of A.M. Allen, Photographer in Pottsville PA, in Schuylkill County. Written on the reverse in pencil is, "Mrs Hoffercamp" (aka Hofferkamp) I have two other photos from this photographer, one from this era and identified as Mrs. Waters in the same handwriting.
A.M. Allen set up Pottsvilles first photographic studio in 1860.
