MAILMAN DELIVERS BABY IN BANGOR, MAINE

This unique cabinet card features a mailman delivering a baby. Alright, he’s not delivering the baby using traditional child birth techniques. He is delivering the baby from his mail pouch. The mailman is dressed in his full uniform and he has a relatively serious expression on his face as he poses for the photographer. The baby’s facial expression can best be described as “sour”. The cameraman is Frank C. Weston, located at 2 Smith Block,  of Bangor, Maine. Weston was a native of Maine who established himself as a photographer in the late 1870’s. His prices were “dictated by a spirit of moderation”, and he was the preferred photographer among the African American community of Bangor.
