Description

This home-made postcard features portraits clipped from other publications and pasted to a postcard-sized piece of cardstock. The top portrait is a reproduction of a photograph taken of Abraham Lincoln on February 27, 1860, in New York. The bottom portrait is of a young Mary Todd Lincoln probably reproduced from an early dagguereotype taken around the time she met Mr. Lincoln in 1839. The reverse of the card is blank.
