No. 1018, White Man's Bar, 1895-1910. Creator: Thomas H. Lindsey Featured 27 Jul 2021 Print

No. 1018, White Man's Bar, 1895-1910. Creator: Thomas H. Lindsey

A cabinet card with a black-and-white print of an unidentified man drinking from a jug while sitting in a wagon. The Conestoga wagon is missing its canvas cover so that the man is fully visible seated in the bed between the exposed ribs. His feet are propped up on the proper right front wheel and he holds a large ceramic jug up to his lips to drink. The wagon is drawn by two oxen that are significantly different in size. The wagon is parked in a dirt street with several store fronts visible along a brick sidewalk in the background. A group of white men in suits stand in front of the nearest storefront to the wagon in the right background. The title "White Man's Bar" is printed in white in the lower right corner of the image, inferring that the African American man in the wagon is drinking alcohol in the street because he is not allowed into the whites only bar. The series title and photographer name are printed in dark blue ink on the bottom and sides of the mount. A descriptive narrative about the series, "The Land of the Sky," is printed in black ink on the back of the tan card mount

Carte-de-visite portrait of Harriet Tubman, 1868-1869. Creator: Benjamin F. Powelson Featured 27 Jul 2021 Print

Carte-de-visite portrait of Harriet Tubman, 1868-1869. Creator: Benjamin F. Powelson

African-American anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman (c1820-1913) was born into slavery in Maryland. She escaped in 1849, became a leading Abolitionist and was active as a conductor in the Underground Railroad, the network which helped escaped slaves to reach safety. She is positioned slightly turned to the right and gazes off camera. Her right hand rests on the back of a wooden chair and her left hand rests in her lap. A patterned carpet covers the floor and the wall or drop behind her is a blank light color. Tubman wears a black bodice that buttons at the center front and has dropped sleeves with heavy ruching and ruffled details on the sleeves. There is a panel of lighter fabric around the yoke, with the upper neck the same dark color as the body of the bodice. A white lace collar with short tails is crossed and pinned at the front of her neck. Her hair is parted at the center and gathered at the nape of her neck. Tubman's full skirt is made from a light and dark patterned gingham check. It drapes slightly on the floor and hides her feet completely. The text "Harriet Tubman" is handwritten in graphite across the bottom of her skirt. The print is mounted on card stock and a double-lined red border is printed around the front edges of the card framing the print

Market Scene, 1880-1888. Creator: Frank A. Nowell

A reddish brown stereograph photograph of a butcher shop scene. In the image, two African-American men stand in front of a display of meat that appears to be staged in a photography studio. The man on the left is wearing khakis, a coat, and a hat with an up-turned rear brim. He is holding a wicker basket to the man in front of him. The man standing in the center of the image is dressed in white pants, a long-sleeved white shirt covered, white apron and a white hat. He is reaching out for the basket with one hand. In the background is a shelf with three rafters that feature two sets of ribs, an upended chicken, a flank, a leg, a hen, and a trussed package. At the far right of the photograph stand two butcher's blocks. Printed in black text on the card on the left side is "F. A. NOWELL, / No. 263 KING STREET, CHARLESTON, S.C." Printed in black text on the right side of the card is "Charleston & Vicinity." Listed on the back of the card are "Catalogue of Views of Charleston and Vicinity," with titles listed from #1-70. "No. 25. Market Scene" is underlined lightly in graphite
