Chippewa man and unidentified man, possibly photographer, Charles D. Fredricks, in Washington, D.C. Carte de visite
The white man depicted with the Chippewa man in this photograph is unidentified on the carte de visite. It is possible that he is the photographer, Charles DeForest Fredricks; the manner in which he holds one hand out of the frame suggests that he holds a cord to his camera that would have allowed him to take the photograph and include himself within the shot. A handwritten note on the verso of the image identifies it as having been taken in Washington, D.C. in 1862.
