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 ‘From her sincere friend / [illegible] / Havana / [15 January 1882]’.

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