Cabinet card portrait of an African American giant wearing a tall furry cap, furry boots, and a coat with ornate floral embellishment. He extends his right arm over the head of a gentleman standing beside him, who wears a top hat to emphasize the giant's tall stature. Pentz & Swords: York, Pennsylvania, n.d., circa 1885. His extravagant outfit and height suggest that he may have been a sideshow performer.
Toning to image. Minor surface soiling. Lower left corner of print possibly touched up with black ink, but difficult to confirm. Some corner/edge wear to mount.
