Ezra Sain

Poignant image of a small, well-dressed handicapped gentleman-- Ezra Sain-- in Panama hat, suit and over that, inexplicably, a silk bathrobe. He sits on a custom tricycle designed to get around on all types of terrain. His legs appear to be useless, and he is posed in front of a seascape photo studio backdrop. Printed on the card is the legend: "EZRA SAIN, Born Nov. 30-[18]34, Weight 55 LBS. Height 3 FT. 6 IN." If the subject was born in 1834, and this card was printed in about 1908, then Mr. Sain was about 76 years old when the photo was taken. On verso: AZO ∆'s stamp box.
