    Two Scenic Cartes de Visite - Lookout Mountain and Lulah Lake, circa 1865-70. On November 23, 1863 the Battle Above the Clouds was fought on the slopes of Lookout Mountain, an important site in the larger Battle of Chattanooga. Due to Lookout Mountain's unique shape and location, an unusual weather phenomenon is often observed there - after dawn, fog will descend from the cooler mountain top toward the valley below and stop about halfway down. This interesting natural occurrence took place the day of the battle and is the reason for its romantic name. Lot includes two outstanding CDV images, each measuring approximately 4 x 2.5", depicting Umbrella Rock with the Tennessee River in the background, and a waterfall at Lulah Lake. Two corners of the Lulah Lake image have been trimmed, but neither shows heavy wear or soiling. Images are crisp and clear. Fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
