Circa 1884 African American "Mammy" Cabinet Card Photograph

Unknown: Original Photograph, 1884. Original Photograph. Photograph. 4 1/8 X 6 1/2 Inches. Very Good. Item #2116

Original ID'ed Circa 1884 Cabinet Card. Photograph annotated on the verso: "Gen Hudson - mammy peeking to see if OK & caught in picture - age about 8 to 10 mo's - b. Sept 20, 1883 Son of James A. & Julia A. Hudson." The card itself is stamped "R.D. Lenhart Photographer - 18 Vine St. - Macon, MO." A bit of research has been done to see if we could locate a General Hudson from Missouri. We haven't found much. That said, the true value of this photograph (in all senses of the term) is the appearance of the "mammy" in the background. She certainly looks happier than the Hudson baby!

A very rare image. Corners a bit rounded and a few spots to surface of image.

Price: $225.00
