Photographs - P.T. Barnum Digital Collection: Special Collaborative Collection from The Barnum Museum and the Bridgeport History Center

Contained within the photographs heading is an array of formats that range from daguerreotypes to albumen prints, and everything in between including cartes de visite, cabinet cards, stereoviews (stereograph cards), posters, "real photo" postcards, and a unique photo album that belong to M. Lavinia Warren (Lavinia Warren Stratton or Mrs. General Tom Thumb.) That album contains about 200 images, including many performers. The photographs in the sub-collection are mostly portraits (especially family photos), but also include of P. T. Barnum’s Bridgeport homes, and exterior photos of Charles and Lavinia Stratton’s homes. Two sets of interior and exterior views of Barnum’s Waldemere and Marina mansions, many with hand-written descriptions, are notable. Barnum Family photos span the generations from the mothers of P. T. Barnum and his wife Charity down to the great-grandchildren.
