[An African-American Family at the Lincoln Memorial]

75.00

24 vernacular views of a single African-American family in Washington, DC with numerous views of them about the National Mall and the Lincoln Memorial. Undated, though print qualities, vehicles pictured, and the clear presence of scaffolding about the Capitol dome suggest to us 1960. An evocative series captured a few years prior to the iconic 1963 March.  

[Photography] : [African-Americana]. [An African-American Family at the Lincoln Memorial]. [Washington, DC]: [ca. 1960]. 24 silver print snapshot photographs. Black and white deckle-edged prints, each uniform in size, approximately 3 1/2" square on Kodak "VELOX" paper. Some mild curling, handling wear to prints. Exposures often blurry. Overall well preserved. About very good.
