[Original B&W Image of Crossdressing Man in Blackface at a Bar]

np: nd [ca. 1945]. Original B&W silver gelatin photograph. 6.5" x 4.5". Some fading to top edges. A bit awkwardly trimmed. A few hairline creases. Very good. Very good. Item #13750

An unsettling photo, likely snapped on Halloween (given decorations seen over subject's shoulders), eerily juxtaposing the costumed man in blackface, the looming police officer (left), and the American flag (top right) - not to mention the birdcage. An odd bit of vernacular photographic Americana.

Price: $75.00
