YOUNG BOY GIVES SISTER A RIDE ON THE BACK OF HIS TRICYCLE : WATERTOWN, WISCONSIN

This cabinet card image features an adorably dressed little boy giving his little sister a ride on the back of his tricycle. Note the children’s hats and the boy’s high top shoes. There is a wonderful view of the antique trike. John B. May, an Englishman, is the photographer of this portrait. The Wisconsin Photographer’s Index falsely reports that he operated a studio in Watertown (Wisconsin) between 1879 and 1899. In fact, according to his obituary, May ended his photography career in 1891.  After his leaving the business, he supervised the telephone Exchange. He later moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was brought back to Watertown for burial in 1899. (SOLD)
