PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG AND HANDSOME AFRICAN AMERICAN MAN IN INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA

This cabinet card portrait features a young African American man. He is well dressed in a three piece suit and wearing a pocket watch. His hat appears to be strategically tipped, and indeed, he does look quite debonaire. This photograph is especially nice because it offers a full portrait of this handsome gentleman. It is difficult to find cabinet card photographs of African Americans that are in excellent condition. Many African Americans did not have the means to have their images taken and did not have easy access to photographer’s studios. This photograph was taken at a studio belonging to James H. Clark. The studio was located in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is listed as a photographer in Indianapolis directories from 1889 through 1900.  SOLD
