Rare CDV photograph of an African American wet nurse, posing with the child she cared for. With backstamp of J.N Wilson photography studio in Savannah Georgia on verso, who established his studio shortly before the Civil War; this photo is likely from the 1860s, evidenced by a light colored mount, square corners on the photo, and coloring to the photograph which was popular in the 1860s. CDVs such as this are uncommon, with wealthy families sometimes choosing to document the relationship between the African American wet nurse and her Causacian baby. With CDV number 2083 handwritten in pencil on verso. CDV measures 2.5'' x 4''. Mild wear and rubbing to mount, overall very good condition.
