WONDERFUL ANTIQUE Cabinet Photo of Dressy Young African American Woman, c. DESCRIPTION: Very rare antique photo of a young African American woman. Great looking young lady, probably no older than 25. Dressed to the nines, including a nice pin, and an ABSOLUTELY GREAT PERIOD HAT!!! Also holding neat umbrella in great pose. Such early photos are very scarce, especially females and especially ones dressed this nicely. Obviously the number taken was small. This photo is no newer than 1880. Standard cabinet photo size and characteristics.

Photographer's ID on the bottom, Geo. Newton's Rail Road Photographic Emporium. This came with a collection of similar antique photos and materials, some of which are identified by person or by photographer/town. Most appear to be from Mississippi, and I assume this one came from there as well. Would make a great gift for the photographic collectors in your family.

A little crazing to the emulsion on the right edge number of spots, but doesn't really affect the primary image and subject matter. Good early, IDENTIFIED cabinet photos of African Americans are very hard to find.
