Did not know the Linn studio was still at it for the next war, cool stuff! And love to know the date on the photo with civilians and soldiers- there are a ton of nurse accounts from Lookout's hospital, love to know if any of the women in that photo were some.

What a great resource, thanks for the links! Here's the most hair raising photo I've come across. Cropped from a steroview, can you imagine?

Thanks for sharing

Point park is one of my favorite places.
@James N. you May enjoy this.
Indeed, I did! Before reading the articles I either failed to realize or had forgotten that their studio was the same exact location as the Ochs Observatory although I was just there last April and actually saw the exhibit! Above, a view to the left of the path leading to the observatory in the area where Grant was photographed; below, view of Moccasin Point from Ochs Observatory.


Below, a photo @1863surgeon sent me from some Facebook page (I have NO idea whose) showing reenactors duplicating the poses:
