Rare original CDV showing the former slave Wilson Chinn reading to Charley, Rebecca & Rosa, who were emancipated, fair-skinned slave children from New Orleans. Charles Paxson, New York studio imprint on the back, and a copyright date of 1864. Very good antique condition overall. 4" x 2.25", so slightly trimmed along the sides, otherwise would be excellent. Boxed & insured Priority Mail.
