- [between 1881-1888]
Item is a white carte-de-visite featuring a full length portrait photograph of a young man dressed in velvet suit jacket trimmed in lace with matching trousers that cut above the knee and have been extended down with a long lace frill. Black stockings complete what was typically a child's dress costume known as a Fauntleroy suit. He stands in front of a studio backdrop showing a doorway, and at his feet the base of a headrest is visible behind him. On verso, an elaborate lithographed design in green with the text "DORION & DELORME/ PHOTOGRAPHERS/ D & D/ 140 SPARKS ST./ OTTAWA./ ONTARIO." Someone has drawn through the image with blue pen in a zig-zag.
