Tiptons have images through so many years, it can be tough ascertaining what year. That makes sense, that the first would be at least post battle if not later, if it's Tipton. From what I can find ( and am NOT researcher so take it for what it's worth ) the brothers left Gettysburg as the invasion approached.

A Gettysburg native, Tipton began working for the Tysons at the age of twelve. In 1866 Tipton and one of his employees, Robert A. Myers, purchased the studio from the brothers and renamed it Tipton and Myers Excelsior Gallery. In 1880 Tipton became sole owner and the firm became known as W. H. Tipton and Company.
