a great smoke

Cigar left by U. S. Grant in Houseworth’s  photo studio San Francisco, CA c 1860

Toronto. Many of us are unaware that the U.S. civil war prompted Britain to establish our country in 1867. Ulysses  S Grant led the North in the fierce battle over slavery.

This CdV is stored in the archive of the NYPL, an institutional member of the PHSC for decades. It is shown here courtesy of that institute’s Digital  Collections. The site lists this CdV as an albumen silver  print mounted on 2.5 by 4 inch card stock.

Thanks to George Dunbar for finding this CdV gem!
