DECORATED NAVY SAILOR AND ONLY FIVE YEARS OLD; OR, PERHAPS A BOY IN COSTUME

cutekidA young boy, wearing what appears to be a naval uniform with a cap and large medals, poses for this cabinet card portrait. Perhaps his father was a sailor. The medal on the left has two crossed rifles. Hopefully a visitor to this site can identify the medals and branch of service. The photographer is Gardner of New York City.
