Original CDV of an African American man, photographed in Fall River, Massachusetts, circa 1865. He looks very familiar, possibly a well-known abolitionist or somebody associated with the Underground Railroad, both of which were active in Fall River at the time, which was also home to the Fall River Female Anti-Slavery Society.Civil War revenue stamp on the back, hand-cancelled in ink handwriting with the words, "Peoples Gallery". My scanner added more color to the image than how it appears in person.
The original is normal CDV color in hand! CDV is 4" x 2.5" with lightly clipped upper corners. Some stains and very light crinkles on the back.
