Lot 297: The Murray Midgets.
October 29, 2016
Yonkers, NY, USALive Auction
Description: The Murray Midgets. CDV by Eisenmann. These triplets pose with their mother. A cabinet card by Eisenmann of the same image is Plate 19 in Michael Mitchell’s Monsters of the Gilded Age (1979), still a valuable resource with an excellent introduction about cabinet cards. This shows that Eisenmann was still issuing photographs in the earlier, smaller carte de visite format well into the cabinet card era.
