Extremely rare and original photo showing theOfficers of Tobacco Trade Union, taken in Petersburg, Virginia around 1899.The photographer's name REES is stamped on the mount just off of the lower-right corner of the image. Mount dimensions are 10" x 8 1/8"; photo itself is 7 7/8" x 5 1/2".The only other example I can find of this historic image is in the collection of the Library of Congress, and I do not believe a
photographer is attributed. According to the LOC, this was part of a collection of important African American images assembled
for the 1900 Paris Exhibition.Condition: The mount has edge wear, as shown, and a repair in the lower-left. The image itself is in excellent antique condition
with very light soiling, and no damages.Default shipping is by boxed & insured USPS Priority Express Mail.. overnight to most addresses. Seller reserves to right to ship using another Express Service, like FedEx.
