Photograph Showing Six Veterans, Including an African-American Subject, Toasting c. 1880.

Reading: New York Gallery, c. 1880. Cabinet card measuring 4 x 2 ½ inches on larger mount, overall fine. Fine. Item #List1405

An unusual cabinet card showing men together toasting, with an African-American subject in the foreground wearing medals on his jacket likely collected at GAR reunions. The men look directly at the camera while a dog sits on the table between them. An unusual image of an integrated party of men presumably toasting their military accomplishments, the only image of this sort we have ever encountered.
