Lts. R. F. Armstrong & A. Sinclair, on the Alabama , in Capetown, south Africa, August 1863.
In the background, centre of the frame, can be seen what is possibly a negro face.
My first impression was that this may be David White, the negro who died at Cherbourg. But closer inspection reveals this man to be around 40 to 50 years old.
