Taylor Armistead on the Hampton River

Eighty-five-year-old Taylor Armistead, formerly enslaved by the Armistead family, stands in a skiff or other small craft in the Hampton River at the turn-of-the-twentieth century. The photograph was taken in Hampton, probably near the King Street Wharf or the dock of an adjacent seafood plant.
