Scope and content

The photograph shows a small boy, probably in a studio setting, sitting on an ornate chair with a small open cardboard box beside him. The name of the publishers, ‘E Day & Son Bournemouth’, is written on the mount. Since the firm did not acquire this name till 1873, the boy cannot be Richard Appleton.
