Taken in Philadelphia during the Civil War, this little boy wanted to be photographed with his drum.
Standing beside this table give the indication that most things in this boy’s world are much bigger than him. A well made snare drum is placed on the table next to him, and his hand rests on a cart de visite album.

The corners are trimmed a bit too much, but certainly made for an easier placement into the photo album sleeves.
