Union Drummer Boy CDV

Civil war CDV of an unidentified Union Drummer boy posing in a photographer's studio in his uniform and kepi, while holding a drum and drumsticks. Backmark of "R. A . Lewis, New York". Touch of wear to upper right corner. Else, beautiful contrast and toning in this very collectible image.
