Carte-de-visite photograph. An oval portrait of Mrs. Childs in a lightly colored or white dress, with her hair pulled up into an elaborate bun. She looks off towards her right, and has her left hand raised, touching her collar. She is faintly smiling. Decoratively mounted on wood, with a thick gilt border. Printed identification of "F. Gutekunst, GlacÚ, Philad'a." in red ink beneath the image. An inscription (in pencil) in an unidentified hand on the verso dates the photograph "1874" and states that it was "given to General Meredith Read".

Emma Bouvier Peterson Childs (1842-1928); wife of American (Philadelphia) publisher, journalist, biographer, and philanthropist, George William Childs (1829-1894). (Item ID: 16884)
