EXTREMELY RARE ANTIQUE Cabinet Photo of Baby African American Girl, Mississippi, c. DESCRIPTION: Nice, particularly rare early cabinet photo of African American baby girl, completely dressed up in fancy dress. Great hair and cute face. She looks to be about 8-10 months maximum.Good early antique photos of African Americans. Are very scarce and hard enough to find today, BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE WITH ONLY A YOUNG BABY.
Obviously the number taken was small to start with given the cost of photography, etc. And many of these did not survive over the years.This one is no newer than 1880 or so. Standard cabinet photo size and dimensions. This format was common at the time. Would make a great gift for the collectors in your family. This came with a collection of a number of early photos of African American subjects. Some are cabinet photos, identified with photographer names, and all from various towns in Mississippi. I expect this one is also by a photographer in the state of Mississippi.
