[An African American chef with fowl.]

New York, [ca. 1920]. Warm-toned silver print in original mat, 5.625” x 3.625” plus mat.

A photograph of an African American chef or kitchen worker in New York, posed in a studio setting with a pair of what appear to be pheasants or perhaps some other fowl. He holds a knife in one hand which rests on a bird lying atop a pedestal, while holding a skinned bird in the other hand. An appealing trade photo of a skilled black man who likely worked at an upscale New York restaurant.

CONDITION: Very good, matte rubbed with minor losses at corners.
