TWO Circa 1890 African American Baptism Cabinet Card Photographs. Author: (Photography) AFRICAN AMERICAN BAPTISM Title: TWO Circa 1890 African American Baptism Cabinet Card Photographs Publication: Unknown: Original Photograph, 1890. Description: Unknown: Original Photograph, 1890.
4 1/4 X 6 1/2 Inches. Item #2108 Two original Cabinet Card photographs depicting the baptism of a young Black girl by her Pastor. The scene includes dozens of onlookers and at least one horse and buggy.
The two photographs look to have been taken within minutes of each other. Interestingly, the actual photographer must have been deeper out into the water as the shots show the baptism from the rear. It was obviously important to this photographer that he capture the scene and the crowd and not just the girl getting Baptized.
