ADORABLE AND FASHIONABLE LITTLE BOY AND HIS BIG TOY HORSE IN TRURO, ENGLAND

This cabinet card portrait features a little boy holding the reigns of his toy horse in one hand and a whip in the other hand. The child is adorably dressed from head to toe. The toy horse beside him is nearly as tall as he is, and is very realistic looking. The horse even has a mane with real hair. E. I. Ellery is the photographer of this lovely image. His studio was located in the city of Truro which is located in Cornwall, England. On the reverse of the photograph is a very elaborate logo advertising Mr. Ellery’s services. An inscription on the reverse identifies the child as being “Percy Rogers” at two years and two months of age.  (SOLD)
