    Description

    WORKING ASIAN MAN - UTAH CARTE DE VISITE - circa 1885. A great Salt Lake City, Utah Carte de Visite of an Asian man wearing traditional clothes and a Bowler-type hat. Many Asian immigrants worked on the railroads at this time and it is a distinct possibility that this man did as well. This card is back-marked by C. W. Carter, a noted photographer of Indian and Western views who operated in Utah (in partnerships) as early as 1864. The image has a wonderful sepia tone and good contrast.

    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.
