    Description

Examples range from formal portraits of Lincoln to images of sites related to his life and the many statues and memorials erected in his honor together with more general tourist cards for various states associated with Lincoln. Also included are images of the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, Civil War monuments and battlefields including numerous views of Vicksburg, Gettysburg, Atlanta, and many others. Also includes some brilliant examples of mid-century roadside Americana regaling in tacky splendor, rich in oversaturated hues and amateur composition. Some have been postal used. Numerous duplicates, condition varies as expected, but overall very good, should be viewed.

    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.
