    U.S.S. Monongahela: Photo Album and Cartes-de-Visite. A most unusual group of items related to the U.S.S. Monongahela, a sloop-of war launched in 1862. There are eight CDV's including a brass and leather album which contained them. There are 24 double-sided leaves in the album (now empty). The cover has four brass corners and a central medallion, all decorated with anchors and rope. One carte shows the ship cruising the Mississippi River (no backmark). The other seven show crew members (five identified). All but one of the sailor images has back stamps of various New Orleans photographers. Three examples have abrasions or pinholes at the top. The balance are clean. One is housed in a Victorian-era easel frame.
