1/9 Plate Size Ambrotype of Young Woman with a Cigar Baltimore MD Photographer Welden's

Baltimore Md had many industries such as early Banjo making, inventing the Linotype machine and had a strong presence in the field of Photography, especially in the early years, Daguerreotypes and Ambrotypes.
This great ninth plate size case photos of a young woman with a cigar in his mouth is circa 1960's, right after the civil war. The back of the image does have a torn photographers card with the name "Welden's Ambrotype & Photography" The shop was located on Baltimore Street opposite Holiday Street. Sadly the number of the street and the photographers full name is not know. I will continue to search and I will add any new information when I can.
