This image is one of several that were popular during the war showing white children who, because of their African-American blood and mixed racial heritage, had been held as slaves in New Orleans.

The three children were named Rebecca, Charley and Rosa. This image is a group shot of all three children. The mount is marked on the bottom “REBECCA, CHARLEY & ROSA-SLAVE CHILDREN FROM NEW ORLEANS.”

Contrast and clarity are good. Paper and mount have light surface dirt and is slightly toned.

The reverse has a photographer’s back mark for CHAS.
