Parents with a sickly baby


A carte-de-visite portrait of two parents with their sickly baby. An inked inscription verso in a period hand reads: 'This portrait was taken 7th Dec. 1875. Baby died 13th Dec. 1875 at Calcutta on board SS Sir John Lawrence.' Another inscription along the lower edge of the reverse of the mount reads: 'For Sarah with Love.'

Photographed by William Francis Westfield of Calcutta.
