Lot 0074
Circa 1870s CDV (carte-de-visite) Photograph; Depiction of a little person, midget dressed in a suit and leaning against a footstool. Although the ancestor's note written on the back identifies this man as "John Kit (Irene's uncle)", I found another example of this photograph identified as Henry Johnson, General Dot, Little Midget. (This is a less often ecountered personality and not to be confused with "Admiral Dot".). Condition: light surface soiling, occasional dings, scuffs, edge wear and foxing spots.
