The David V. Tinder Collection of Michigan Photography Carte de Visite Photographs series includes upwards of 17,000 photographs produced by approximately 1,270 professional photographers from across the state of Michigan between 1859 and ca. 1910. A majority of the subjects are unidentified people of middle and upper classes, with some notable persons, performers, comic poses, occupational portraits, and people of various ethnic backgrounds represented. A smaller number of pictures of objects and outdoor views are also included. Series I includes mostly anonymous individual portraits taken by known photographers. The Clements Library has created a complete list of photographers represented in the Tinder cartes de visite: Cartes de visite photographers list. Series II is sorted by subject. For all but the broadest categories (such as children, men, or women), the subject groupings include almost all of the photos in the collection on that subject.
