Cabinet Card Photograph Greenville, Texas Confederate Officer Copy of Tintype ca 1890's - This is a rare marked image of a dashing Texas Confederate officer and is most certainly an image transfer from an original tintype. The officer is wearing an attractive gray Lieutenant's or Captain's uniform. The card is impression marked, "Adams - Greenville, Tex." denoting the work of brothers Elias and William Adams, listed photographers from 1896-1900 in Greenville. There is significant water damage to the card in the upper right corner, which has peeled off layers of the paper on the backside only. The front side is denuded but nicely darkened with no fresh damage, limiting the distractibility of the loss. There is very minor chipping to the base of the image itself with some light fading. A great marked Texas Confederate image is rare, as most of these copies and the original tintypes themselves were not marked, with a fine looking officer in uniform. Measures approximately 4.25"x 6", oval format photo is 3.5" x 2.5".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
