Mammy, I Jes' Wants a Chance

n.p. The Perry Prints, c. 1904. Boston Edition [no stated limitation]. Black & white print on textured paper. Image size approximately 15 x 10 cm. Title appears as a caption beneath the picture as does "The Perry Pictures. 7628. Boston Edition." Recently framed (with glass). The picture shows a small African American boy sitting on a box and staring at his mother who wearing a head rag and sitting in a rocker on a rickety porch. Perry prints were popular in the first decade or two of the 20th century. This one must have been the inspiration for Otis Galbreath's "Let Bygones Be Bygones" which belongs to Clark Atlanta University Galleries and was reproduced in "To Conserve a Legacy...".
