This hand tinted image is identified on the back as being from Charleston, South Carolina.

Each boy shows the "tools of his trade"-- the one has a shoeshine box and the other is carrying newspapers.

The image is in excellent condition and shows the art of early photograph tinters.

Reproduction of this image in any form is not authorized.
