This is an artist’s rendition of an early photograph of the famous American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who lived primarily in the New England area.
There is no description on the back of this card. The legend says:
HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW
BORN 1807 — DIED 1882.
–Among his notable poems are Evangeline and the epic Song of Hiawatha.
This image likely dates from the 1940s.
