Cabinet Card

Cabinet cards were a larger version of CDVs. Almost twice as big, a cabinet card measured 4½ by 6½ inches. They supplanted the cartes de visite by the early 1870s. The larger size and greater detail appealed to the public, and they were frequently taken at Christmas time to send to friends and family. Cabinet cards remained popular until Kodak introduced home snapshot photography in the early twentieth century.
