Remember back a couple months ago I posted some oddball caricature 1881 trade cards by Frank Pearsall? Well eBay never disappoints and another appeared by the same artist as the others; and it’s just as odd, colorful and cartoony as the others. I now have four in total and hopefully will see more in the future.
To put things in perspective, Pearsall's Compact Camera is historically important and very rare; only three known. It is shown here with a tintype portrait of Frank Pearsall and one of his early 1870s business cards.
