CDVs of Japanese acrobats 'All Right' and fellow child performer Taken by Beaufoy Merlin
Very rare pair of carte-de-visite photos of Umekichi of the Hamaikari troupe who was given the nickname 'All Right' as he would often say the word (probably sounded like 'Orai' as it still does today in Japanese). The mount is titled 'All Right' at the lower edge. The other is of another child performer obviously taken at the same time. They were members of a troupe that toured Australia in 1871.
Sydney. American & Australasian Photographic Company. .
Each 10.3 x 6.3cm.
In very good condition. Some minor age wear. Beaufoy Marlin's name on the rear of each has been almost rubbed out. Minor loss to lower right corner of 'All Right's CDV.
