    Blacks Posed in Pair of Photographs Two items: a 9.5" x 7" photograph on a 12" x 10" mount presenting a group of whites (four are identified by their initials) posed on and around a locomotive in Duluth, Minnesota in 1870. To the left of the group is a lone African American looking directly at the camera. Light soiling to top of image and mount. Together with a 7.5" x 5.5" photograph of a family in front of their home in Aiken, South Carolina. (Note the boy in front showing his prowess with his bow and arrow!) At the far left, a black man poses wearing his hat and holding a staff, on the left behind the fence a domestic sits smiling. Pinholes along extreme perimeter on the mount detract little. A fine pair of 19th century photographs.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
