Cabinet   Unpublished WALT WHITMAN.
This cabinet card by Pendleton, 297 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, is a previously unrecorded portrait of the poet. Pendleton's establishment was right next door (or across the street?) from G. Frank Pearsall's studio at 298 Fulton Street. The portrait may have been taken at the same time as Pearsall's September 1872 image. [Thanks to Professor Ed Folsom of "The Walt Whitman Quarterly" and the on-line "Whitman Gallery" for this suggestion.] [3+]
