A Chinese man in Connecticut

A Chinese man in Connecticut

A carte-de-visite portrait of a Chinese man wearing Chinese costume, seated against a painted backdrop in a photographer’s studio in North America.

An inked inscription verso, presumably in the sitter’s own hand, reads ‘To Miss Emma / Comfort from / her friend / Lin Ching Tsun / 9th March 1883 / Havana, Cuba’.

Photographed by R.S. DeLamater of Hartford, Connecticut.
