Original 1870s carte de visite of Lizzie A. Reed. (Maiden Name: Lizzie Ames) who worked for P.T.

The back is marked lightly in pencil, "Lizzie Ames, 21 years old" (see picture)

Lizzie was a midget who worked for P.T. Barnum's Museum along with giants Anna Swan, Noah Orr, and Monsieur Joseph, Edward Newell (midget), albino's Amos and Charles Gorhen, Circassian Beauties Zuruby Hannum and Zalumma Agra, and the married skinny man and fat lady, John and Hannah Battersby.

This photo was taken by City Photograph Gallery from Chicago, IL.
It has At Col. Wood's Museum and Gallery of Fine Art, Chicago, printed on the front.

Many photos were taken of Mrs. Reed during this time but there is not much information known about her. I have not been able to find this particular image anywhere else.

Measurements: 4" x 2.5"

(Please see photographs for best description of cosmetic condition and style.)

This would make an excellent addition to your collection!
