    Hello, I bought some old family photos a couple weeks ago, and I'm just now getting around to sorting them out. This cool photo was among them and I had a couple questions. Would this photo be considered a cabinet photo? It is larger than any other cabinets I have that are in old family albums. It has the photo applied to a larger card stock, like cabinets & CDV's, but of course is larger. Also, this photo was among many similar sized (and larger & smaller sized) portrait photos of family members, many of which have closing flaps to protect the photos. So this photo was among many very formal family portraits from the early 20th century, & I believe some from around the early 1920's. I'm not as familiar with early 20th century family photos. Most photos from that time period that I am familiar with are either baseball cards (tobacco cards) or RPPC's. Thought the folks in this fine group might be able to enlighten me on what type of photo this is. Thank you.

    Mounted Photograph is what some people call these type of cards. I don't think anyone will care if you used Cabinet Card though.

    OK, they do remind me of the cabinets that are often in old family albums, but bigger, and very formal. And yes, after reading the back, it appears that railway will still be around for awhile! Thank you for the replies.
