Description

This color print features the Springfield home of Abraham Lincoln, positioned at a three quarter view with the front of the house facing slightly to the left. Abraham and Mary Lincoln can be seen talking to a passerby in front of the house in the foreground. A woman and small child stand at the top of the steps that lead up to the house, while a man sits on the porch with another reading a newspaper in front of him. A man and woman walk on the sidewalk alongside the house on the right.
