Rare wooden fan shaped frame for carte de visite. They exists with 5 or 7 "arms" that fold like
a fan. The front has 2 swallows and the line "Ricordo" which is Italian for "memories".

The 5 photos are of a man in the centre. The photo of the lady with a child is taken by the same
photographer at the same time, so maybe his wife and their child. The photo of the boy with his dog
and the lady on the right of the man are also taken by the same photographer at the same time. Maybe
the same child and wife, but older. The photo on the left of the man is of a younger woman. That could
be his wife but when she was very young. It's the only one by a different photographer.

Young boy dressed for summer, holding a whip and leaning against a rock. Next to him
is a dog that looks like a basset hound but fluffier?
