Lincoln’s Sons with Mary Lincoln’s Cousin, Lockwood Todd Modern Photograph
An Intimate Family Portrait
Seldom Seen in the Marketplace
Lincoln’s Sons Modern Photograph. Digital Reprint made from original carte de visite photograph, made by Mathew Brady, circa 1861. Image 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″, printed on 8″ x 1)” cream-colored stock.
Mary Lincoln’s cousin, Lockwood M. Todd, poses with the Lincoln sons, Willie and Tad. This photo was originally taken in Brady’s gallery in 1861 and produced only as a carte de visite. This pose was most likely made for family members. It hardly every arrives in the marketplace in it’s original state.
A warm family photo, Lockwood has mastered the “side eye” when it comes to Tad; and given the young man’s reputation it’s to be expected! Willie gazes at his second cousin, with a sense of admiration.
We have an original carte, too. Take a Look.
