Waino & Plutano "Wild Men of Borneo"

Beautiful portrait of the brothers in WENDT's studio at 229 Bowery, shortly after he purchased Eisenmann's business. Photo displays better contrast than later WENDT prints. See other Cabinet Card taken during same session, perhaps seconds apart (note that position of folds in Barney's shirt and flower petals on floor and stand match exactly). Mount is unusually deckled with half-moon cut-outs on top and bottom, but not the sides.
