    Confederate Signal Corps Blockade Runner Album: Two Cartes-de-Visite. One shows a very young, standing officer in a studio setting with Anderson & Turner of New Orleans back mark. Two cent blue revenue stamp on verso indicating the image was taken or a copy made at the end of the war. Wears double breasted gray frock coat with short standup collar, large gauntlets and dark trousers. Excellent condition. The other CDV shows a standing officer with arms crossed wearing what appears to be a blue double breasted frock coat with vest and 6 small buttons on the underside of each cuff. Grey kepi on the pillar at his side. No backmark, excellent and a rather rakish subject who bears a strong resemblance to Raphael Semmes. Identified in the album as Greenville McNeal of Houston The first subject may turn out to be the album's owner.
