Lincoln's Tomb-Mounted Albumen-Group of People
Item #: NEW-0015048

Click image to enlarge
This photograph with board measures 8 X 10 inches. There are three small edge tears which you don't notice due to the professional mounting. There is a notch in the bottom edge. There is a photographer's imprint, which I can't read but the town is Milford, Illinois.  The large grouping of people most likely indicates that it was made for some special event.

Mounted Albumen-"Lawton's Wagon"-Noah Gifford Photographer
Item #: NEW-0014157

Click image to enlarge
This photo including board measures 8 by 10 inches.  There is a faint photographer's mark on the lower left hand corner which reads Noah Gifford, who was a civil war era photographer in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Pencil writing on the back reads, "Rear View-Lawton's wagon showing blood smeared on tail board and the ? of the wheels."  I was told that this was from Camp Lawton in Georgia, which was a Confederate POW camp.  I have been unable to verify this and think it is probably not true.  Although Gifford was a photographer during the civil war, I have not seen any examples of his work in the South.  According to the person I bought it from, it was found in a lot of photographs from the 1912 Gettysburg reunion.  I think it is possible that it might be related to Confederate General Alexander Lawton who was carried from the battle at Antietam after a very serious wound.  This item needs more research.

Stone Lithograph Print-Glamorized Abraham Lincoln
Item #: NEW-0012543

Click image to enlarge
This is actually a beautiful stone lithograph of Lincoln's head with a fantasy body.  Lincoln was a rather homely man and his image was touched up by many artists.  It has been trimmed to the right hand to fit the frame.  There is a touch of scotch tape residue on the printed autograph where someone had made a fake autograph and put it over the printed one.  Measures 19 plus by 15 inches. The scan has not captured the creme color on the border and in real life it is lighter. There are some acidic stains on the back where the framer did not use acid free tape.

CDV-Nashville State Capitol-Occupation
Item #: NEW-0011285

Click image to enlarge
This view was produced by J H Van Stavoren's Metropolitan Gallery, H Hall photographer.  This was made during the Union occupation of Nashville.  Roughness to the edges, including a cut at the top and some edge stains. The top sky area has a dingy appearance. The Capitol is quite light in fact you cannot see the top of the Capitol.  There is a crease on the photo itself but not too prominent.  This is a rare view showing the buildings under the Capitol, including the tents for the occupational army.. The dark structure is St Marys.  Demombreum Street would be the reference point for this view. Please study the scan closely to view the overall condition.
