||George Washington Morrison Nutt; Minnie Warren Bump
||1 sheet : illustrations, portraits ; 11 cm
Souvenir card showing Commander Nutt (George Washington Morrison Nutt, 1844 - 1881) and Minnie Warren (Huldah Peirce Bump, 1842 - 1878) standing side by side on a carpet between a chair and a cupboard. He is wearing a dress suit and she is wearing a full length ball gown in a light material with ribbon trimmings. The card would probably have been sold as a souvenir at places where they were exhibited as part of a freak or variety show. Both worked for P.T. Barnum in the mid 19th century, Nutt joining in 1863. Minnie's sister Lavinia Warren married 'General Tom Thumb' (Charles Sherwood Stratton, 1838-1883) who also worked with them.
