Carte de visite (CDV) of an African American boy in a photographers chair.

The clothing is typical of Civil War era clothing that mimicked the military uniforms. The boots seem to be a little tall for the Civil War era so the image may be a little later.

Mounted on thin cardstock of the CW era.

The back has the subjects ID in period pencil but no photographers backmark.
