[Georgetown, British Guiana : s.n., late 1860s]. Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, 64 x 100 mm (mount); no photographer’s imprint; verso with fully contemporary inscription in ink: ‘Indian boys, Demerara’, and in pencil: ‘S.A.’ (i.e. South America); although it is a copy-print made at the time, the print has plenty of detail and is in good condition; the early square-cornered mount has a spot of foxing at one corner recto, but is otherwise clean and stable.
