Candy Corn Seller

Superb occupational studio of bearded man with wicker basket on which is painted "CORN CANDY." He displays a package of candy in right hand and a sugar shaker is mounted on his hip. He would have sold his confections at fairs, carnivals, circuses and sporting events-- a precursor to Cracker Jack sellers at ballparks. On verso: PRESCOTT & WHITE/368 MAIN ST./HARTFORD, CONN.
