BOY DRUMMER FROM TRAVELING MINSTREL SHOW IN FERNDALE, CALIFORNIA

This cabinet card features a bow tied young boy posing with two drums in the studio of A. W. Gilfillian, in Ferndale, California. The reverse of the card has an inscription that identifies the subject as Arthur Robinson, who was “part of a traveling minstrel show” during the late 1800′s. The inscription also dates the photograph “before mom’s visit in 1895″.
