Description

Adrian Constantine Cap Anson presides on this dated 1911 original studio portrait. The Hall of Famer appears plump and proper on this black and white antiquity crafted by Roe of New York. Measuring 11x14, the caption depicts the stoic Anson at 59 years of age. This centerpiece is in fine shape with negligible toning, a pair of smudge marks on the upper edge and a printing imperfection on the lower right corner. The blank reverse reveals inconsequential wear aside from a pencil marking. The namesake of the studio etched his inscription in period pencil and dated the original photography memento depicting the dapper Anson toward the conclusion of his life.
