Description

This photographic print is a reproduction of an original photograph taken of President Abraham Lincoln in 1862 in Washington, D. C. According to a handwritten note on the reverse by someone from The Albertype Company dated March 6, 1942, the print was reproduced from the original 1862 negative using the Albertype process. President Lincoln posed for the original photograph turned slightly toward the viewer's left wearing a black coat and bow tie.
