Cabinet portrait in overall good condition with wear (a vertical crease in middle of the card) and minor soiling on recto and verso. Crease is superficial in that it is not very deep and there is no loss of emulsion on the photo and the card has not cracked. Attractive subjects identified in light pencil on verso as. Presumably the young girl is the woman's granddaughter.

Merry, New Yok, as listed in decorative script below the photo. Dates to 1891 as noted above.

Interesting item in several respects: affluent black family in first (deep) mourning. The child is also dressed in full mourning which is unusual and not often seen.

Lastly, it's from New York City (Chelsea) near an area (Greenwich Village) which once had a sizable black population in the late nineteenth century before moving north to Harlem circa 1900. Get images that make Supersized seem small.
