    Description

    MAGNIFICENT BARRY IMPERIAL CARD OF CUSTER BATTLEFIELD MONUMENT ca. 1881. Handsome sepia-toned image measuring approximately 6.5" x 9.25", depicting the newly erected granite Custer monument. Surrounding the engraved monolith are numerous cairns, each supporting a wooden marker identifying the places that Custer's soldiers fell and died. These wood markers would be replaced by the Army in 1890 with white marble headstones. Printed in gilt at the lower edge of Barry's 6.75" x 9.75" photo mount: "Custer Battle Field." On verso, Barry's gilt imprint: "Bismarck and Standing Rock, D.T." An absolutely pristine piece, showing a very early view of the Custer Battlefield Monument. Very fine.
