Loose singleton, great image carte-de-visite

Just a random CDV I acquired, because I have another CDV from the same photographer – R.A. Lewis, at 152 Chatham Street, New York. The address no longer exists – the approximate location is near 1 Police Plaza in lower Manhattan. The street grid was completely ripped up and re-done in that area when 1PP was being built, and so there are numerous streets that either changed names or vanished altogether. This is one of them.

I liked the image because the photographer knew how to arrange the gentleman’s pose to show his height in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
