- Very interesting image - woman (in civilian dress) wearing a kepi with
the 15th Infantry insignia on the hat. Has a Cleveland, Ohio
photographers b/m. Identified in period ink on the front "Georgie". Don't
know if this is a former woman soldier taking a photo with the old kepi on
or perhaps Georgiana Willets - one of the famous nurses of the War (as it
looks close to her lithograph likeness in the book 'Women of the War').
Big questions!! At any rate, something that's not seen every day. Carte
shows typical wear, radius on corners and a crease in the mount across the
lower right side of the card.
WOMAN WEARING JACKET WITH CAPTAINS SHOULDER BOARDS
AND MILITARY VEST(?)- ILLINOIS PHOTOGRAPHER

military. Sycamore, Illinois photographer. Did she enlist as a man or is
this the husband's uniform? Residue from a tax stamp on reverse
indicating that it's a later War image.

Cureton & Sullivan and owned by Mike McAfee. The image in

sergeant's stripes. He is wearing the M-1859 uniform cap with
one of the two different hat plates - unmistakable even with the
coloring. Was originally in an oval matted frame as can be seen
on the tin, moved to a period rectangular frame which allows the
entire photo to be seen. Very good condition.
