George S. Cook is probably the most well known Southern Photographer.
He opened daguerreotype studios in several cities prior to the Civil War and then settled in Charleston in 1849.
His images of Southerns and War related shots are highly prized among collectors.
This particular image most likely dates to just before the Civil War.
The image is housed in a COOK photographic case with studio information imprinted on the pillow.
Reproduction of these images in any form is prohibited.
