About this object
A full length carte de visite portrait of an unidentified boy.

The boy is standing on an elevated platform against a wooden post that is propping him up. He is dressed in a decorative embroidered jacket, shirt and three quarter pants with striped stockings and ankle boots.

He is standing turned slightly to his left holding a straw hat and what appears to be a small posy of flowers in his right hand. His other hand is in his pocket. The child is possibly a friend or member of the Russell Duncan family.
