Date: 1860
Place: Boston
Photographer: J. W. Black of Black and Batchelder
Note: Writing in 1860 about his trip to Boston, Whitman said, "I create an immense sensation in Washington street. Everybody here is so like everybody else—”and I am Walt Whitman!—”Yankee curosity and cuteness, for once, is thoroughly stumped, confounded, petrified, made desperate." J. W. Black's gallery was on Washington Street, known as the "photography row" of Boston.
