4" x 2.25". "Our protection Rosa, Charley, Rebecca Slave Children from New Orleans". Such CDV photographs of emancipated slave children were sold to raise funds for the education of freed slaves in New Orleans. They were intended to draw attention to the fact that slavery was not just a matter of colour - if a mother's child was a slave then he too was a slave.
