CDV shows a Civil War officer seated at a small table and reading what appears to be an open newspaper. He wears a civilian hat and short Confederate uniform jacket with colored cuff-facings, curiously accented with Union-style rank insignia on his shoulders. A young African American man stands to the officer's right, holding a tray with a corked bottle and glass. Guay & Co.: New Orleans, LA, n.d., ca 1860s. The studio imprint notes Guay & Co.'s Camp Street address in New Orleans, which operated between 1863-1867.
