About this Item

The photograph measures approximately 4.25 x 5.5" and in fine condition with minor wear to edges not extending to photograph. Twenty-one wives surround his image (why that number is not clear since he had sixteen upon his death that were included in his will but others had possibly non-conjugal relationships). The back of the card has the name written of Harriet Barney Young but it does not appear to be authentic. The Johnson Company of Salt Lake was owned by Charles Ellis Johnson who had married Ruth Young, a daughter of Brigham Young though they eventually separated, He joined Parley P. Pratt in operating a drug store and soon became fascinated with photography. He became the photographer of Salt Lake City theater, also photographing actresses as well as nudes and some photographs which were considered risqué. His photograph of Brigham Young and the twenty-one wives has not been fully explained. Five other (later) photographs will accompany this photograph including one of Joseph Smith.
