James N. I notice a date on the scroll at bottom; I assume it to be July 4, 1776. Confirm? or is it date of photo?
You're right That's not my photo, but I have another with a similar "patriotic" design that includes the slogan "The Union Now and Forever." Photo mats, preservers, glass, and the boxes themselves were commercial items purchased by local photographers from big companies like the Anthony Company. Brass mats and preservers were made by the same manufactures of buttons and other stamped or cast items such as the Waterbury or Scovill Manufacturing Company.

I spent a lot of this morning looking at photos and trying to write. The more I do the more I am convinced I can't. But if I do write it, I'll let you all see the text. I don't intend to publish for money.
