Carte-de-visite of a young boy identified as Hubert Gideon Welles, dressed in an outfit said to be sewn by Elizabeth Keckley. The child wears a light colored blouse under a checked long sleeve jacket, fastened closed at the collar. On the bottom he wears a matching checked skirt with a wide solid color band towards the hem. The child stands next to an ornate wood chair, holding on to the chair back. On the reverse of the card is text that reads "HENRY ULKE, / 278 Pennsylvania Avenue, / Washington, D.C. / 1865."
