    Charming Miniature Tintype Photo Album With Ulysses S. Grant. Includes nearly 50 Civil War era family images in gem size, each tintype being approximately 0.75" x 1". Many charming portraits including children, women in fashionable attire, and many more. On the last page is a typical military image of Grant. None of the other photos appear to be famous people, so it is rather odd to find Grant in this grouping. Wouldn't it be delightful if some enterprising researcher were to compare images and discover that this album is full of Grant relatives! Nearly all the tintypes are in great condition, and the album cover is very good except for some spine wear.
