Lot 183: Interesting 7.5 x 10 photograph of the 1899 Senate of North Carolina, affixed to its original 13 x 16 mount, listing the names of each state senator with the photographer's information prominently displayed at the bottom, "C. P. Wharton." The intriguing composite photograph depicts the fifty-one members of the North Carolina Senate including Thomas O. Fuller in the lower right corner, misidentified as "T. A. Fuller." In 1898, Fuller became the first African American elected to the North Carolina Senate—and the only one until 1968. In very good condition, with overall toning and light foxing to the mount, and a crease to the upper left of the mount.
