Date: Late 1860s
Place: New York
Photographer: William Kurtz
Note: This photo is usually dated 1860, but Kurtz did not open his own studio in NY until after the Civil War, and the original photo carries Kurtz's Madison Square imprint (the Madison Square gallery was not opened until 1874, though this may be a later printing of an earlier photo). The Library of Congress copy is endorsed by WW: "Walt Whitman 1869" (which Saunders misread as "1860").
