West Point, New York: 1868. Unbound. These 34 albumin photographs are mounted on both sides of 17 heavy card leaves. Most measure 7.75” x 5.5”. All are captioned in the margin. They also are annotated W.P.M.A. 1868. The photographs are all in nice shape, as are most of the mounting cards; several of the cards have some marginal soiling.
