Carrie Akers

Carte De Visite. Affecting portrait of "Midget Fat Lady" Carrie, her face an unhappy mask of defiance. She wears flowers in her hair, and pinned across the front of her dress are a medal with a star in a shield motif, a large dangling coin, what looks like an engagement ring on a chain, along with a thick locket or pocket watch. On verso: A very faint rubberstamp: "Carrie Akers, Height 31 in., Weight 300lbs."
