Imposing 10 x 15.5 portrait of Harrison taken in 1888 by George Prince, affixed to its original 11 x 17.25 mount, signed on the mount in black ink, “Benj. Harrison.” Archivally double-cloth-matted and framed. Toning to edges from previous display and a large repaired chip to the top edge of the mount, otherwise fine condition; all existing imperfections have since been expertly matted out, making for a highly presentable presidential showpiece. Three weeks after Harrison was elected president in November 1888, the Washington Post reported that local photographer George Prince, whose studio was on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 11th Street, had gone to Indianapolis and ‘made a large photograph of General Harrison.’
