This rare and poignant six image grouping of Samuel Hector Lifshey's (1871-1954) early photographic work is signed and dated S. H. Lifshey '98 in his own hand. This work features two impossibly cute little boys - perhaps his own children - in patriotic poses dressed as sailor and soldier ending in a sleepy aftermath. Lifshey chose to entitle this wonderful early photographic endeavor, U. S. Infantry, inscribed in his own hand. These images are housed in their original frame and are a statement to the skill of an exceptional photographer with a keen eye for composure relating to the conflict America was involved in when these photographs were made. The entire piece measures 28 3/4 inches by 7 3/4 inches. Each gelatin-silver photograph is 4 by 3 1/4 inches, except the last on the far right which is 3 1/4 by 2 1/4 inches. There is a water mark on the bottom half of the mat to which the photographs are affixed; it doesn't appear to have affected any of the images. There's a bit of wear to the frame and the paper backing has been replaced at some point.
