Composante Notes This engraving, taken from a photograph, depicts the wedding party of celebrated midgets Mr. and Mrs. General Tom Thumb, with Commodore Nutt as best man and Minnie Warren Bump (Lavinia's sister) as maid of honor. P.T. Barnum, who helped arrange the wedding, stands behind the midgets, who were all sideshow performers at Barnum's American Museum. This elegant wedding, known as "The Fairy Wedding,” took place on February 10, 1863 and was attended by New York high society, with a huge crowd gathered outside the church. The back of this cabinet card (see #1003773) bears a lengthy description of the reception dress Mrs. Thumb is wearing. These cabinet cards were sold at Barnum's American Museum.
