A great photo of a Grand Army of the Republic post. There are several Spanish American War soldiers behind the old Civil War veterans. The photo is approximately 8 5/8 inches by 6 1/2 inches. The gray board has been cut down and it measures approximately 9 1/4 inches by 7 5/16 inches. The corner on the bottom left has been broken but is still attached. This does not affect the image of the old soldiers.
A nice group with a large photograph of a group of older men with two women. The man seated on the left is wearing a GAR uniform and his GAR membership badge. The other men are likely veterans but I can ssee no badges or lapel pins. In front of the men is a stereo viewer with a stack of stereo views. The photograph is approximately 8 inches by 10 inches. On looking at the back there are names but unfortunately the photo has been trimmed and some of the first names are gone. The family's last name is Ebright. With the photograph is another photograph which is a 1920's copy of an Union soldier's CDV. This photograph is approximately the size of a cabinet card. On the back of this photo is "Wearing his Civil War Uniform - He was not 18 when he served." Unfortunately this photograph was trimmed also. A nice grouping.
Here is a great photo of a seated GAR member. He is wearing his GAR hat, lapel pin, and a large ribbon that looks like a camp badge. I can't read it but it has a celluloid drop hanging and a celluloid hanger. This photo is approximately 3 inches by 4 inches total.
Here is a nice photograph of a GAR Post Commander in uniform. He is wearing his Post Commander's GAR badge and you can see the GAR buttons on his uniform. He is standing by a pedistal holding a rolled document. There is some light scratching on this cabinet card as seen in the photograph. There is no photographer mark or location mark.
