Cartoonist drawing representing an African American family at the World's Columbian Exposition. The caption under reads, “Eswell Johnson, stop shakin’ Han’s wid dat Heathen! You want De Hull Fair ter t’ink you’s found a Poo’ Relation?” The faces involved are not human, but monkey. It captures the racism of the time. In Harper's Weekly, issue unknown, page 797 and 798.
