CDV - LIBBY PRISON - RICHMOND PHOTOGRAPHER - Image of Libby
Prison in Richmond, Va. with the photographer's marking of Anderson -
Richmond, Va. Believe this image to have been taken shortly after
Richmond was taken as there are what appears to be Union soldiers outside
guarding. Clothes can be seen hanging out the windows probably after
washing. Interesting image. CDV has a bit light contrast and is in good
condition.

43rd MASSACHUSETTS INFANTRY - LARGE
ALBUMEN - 1863
- (12 3/4" X 13 5/8" mount - 9 1/2"
X 11 1/8" albumen image size). There were a number of
these shots taken by Lieut. G.H. Nickerson on March 13,
1863 at Camp Rogers in Newbern, N.C.Most of what you
see are the distant views of the troops in a square
formation - not a close view as this one. There is a
pre-printed description and title on the mount.
Unfortunately this one has some water damage as can be
seen in the photos. The image itself is not too bad but
does have areas of spotting in the lower left and upper
right edges. There is a bit of waviness in the mount due
to the water.

CDV - INDIAN CHIEF HOLDING A RIFLE - Image of lightly tinted Indian
Chief with head dress and holding the barrel of a rifle. There is no
photographer's backmark but image looks to be a period second generation
photo due to the clarity as can be seen in photos. Looks good until you put
a loop on it then you notice the fuzziness. There is an abrasion in the
albumen paper near the hand holding the gun. At one time the back had
been glued to some kind of board and there was a lot of material left on the
reverse but I have removed that.

RUBY AMBROTYPE OF INFANTRY SOLDIER NEXT TO HIS
HARDEE HAT
 - 1/6 Plate ruby ambrotype with great clarity
showing the soldier sitting next to a table that holds the Hardee
hat with Infantry insignia. To me this guy looks a bit familiar
and of course when it comes from Michigan and you see that
Hardee hat, the 24th Michigan Infantry of the Iron Brigade
automatically comes to mind. As far as I have been able to
check, I have been unable to confirm even a slight chance of
that. The image has a few small scratches and the leatherette
case has been repaired on the hinge though it is still shakey.
Overall a beautiful image.
