Antique Victorian African American Photo Proofs Rare OOAK:
$34.50

Here are some late Victorian and/or Edwardian (early 20th century) photo proofs. These were photos taken, in order to see what the customer would finally want, before making, I suppose, a “bigger picture,” or cabinet card out of them.


The very brittle paper measures approximately 5 inches, by roughly an inch and a half wide. The photographic paper does show creases, some tears, some stains, and at the far left end (facing you), the paper is creased upwards. It “could” fall off if bothered with. But please understand, you are dealing with paper that is now around 120 years old. And African American photograph proofs from this era, are probably “extremely rare” to find now.


Doubtless…not many of these survived! There are no names on the back. So whoever they were, their names are lost to history. But obviously, they lived. Wonder what their lives were like?


Item will be safely packed in plastic, to prevent rain damage, between cardboard, in a bubble mailer. My response, going all the way back to 2002, speaks for itself. Rest assured, you will receive your item.


“Buy it now!” Or “Make Offer”. And get it for Christmas! Hope this “rare” piece of African American history finds a “good” home!
