Not much is known about Louis Dodero of Marseilles other than he is credited for inventing the Carte de visite.[1] More often than not, this credit is erroneously given to André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri who popularised the use of this type of photograph mostly because of his good fortune to be in the right place and the right time during Napoleon III's visit to his studio.
