Albumen print photograph, 6 15/16 x 8 15/16 inches, mounted on cardstock, Corinth, Mississippi, 1862, being a street scene, varnished, some spotting including to mount, edgewear to cardstock.
A RARE AND UNUSUAL IMAGE, HEAVY WITH A SENSE OF FOREBODING. Depicts a busy town center in May 1862, just a few months before the Battle of Corinth in October of that year. In the center of the image, in between two grocery stores stands the aptly-named "Secession Saloon."
