Cabinet Cards Circus Sideshow Freaks General Mite &
- Source: eBay
Two great cabinet cards! One is of the famous primordial midget General Mite - the Smallest Man in the World, and the other is of the "Mexican Liliputian", Lucia Zarate. Both cards are in excellent condition, with sharp, clear images, and very little foxing/spotting. T is minor edge discoloration consistent with photos from the late 1800s, but nothing that detracts from the images. They were both taken at the J. Wood studio in the Bowery, New York City. Only the General Mite card is marked with the photographer's mark, but the backdrop, carpet, subject poses, and even the cloth draping the table are identical in each photo. My computer scan does not begin to do them justice. The descriptions on the card backs say it all! You will not be disappointed with these. I was tempted to sell them separately, but they've been together for years, so couldn't bring myself to split them. If you have any questions, please ask before bidding. Insurance to cover the winning bid is included in the shipping cost. Thanks.
