PORTRAIT OF AN ASIAN YOUNG MAN IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

ASIAN_0004A young Asian man poses for his portrait in this cabinet card portrait from the Moloney studio in Boston, Massachusetts. The reverse of the photograph has an inscription identifying the subject as Yee Hock. American images of Asians are uncommon. This gentleman is wearing ethnic clothing. The 1892 and 1912 Boston Almanac and Business Directory lists M. J. Moloney as being a photographer at the 22 Hanover address printed on this photograph. Another source reported that Moloney served the Boston area as a photographer for over twenty years.

  1. There is a Yee Hock in the Boston City Directories from 1929-1935. He is listed as manager.

  2. Now that’s an unusual portrait.
