Maison Alphonse Giroux
Front cover for Catalogue General des Photographies Carte de Visite
Giroux was a furniture maker and art restorer who is known for constructing the first daguerreotype cameras for Louis Daguerre, as well as some of the first stereo viewers. This catalog probably lists carte de visites sold by Giroux's shop, rather than ones having been taken by him.
