Verso: Tipton's Gettysburg Views.
My personal attention has been given to photographing the field of Gettysburg ever since the great battle in 1863. My collection is larger than the collections of all others combined, numbering thousands of negatives, old and new, in all sizes from stereoscopic to 20x24 inches, including views of all points and positions of historical interest, military monuments, groups of all occasions of interest, etc., etc. Many of these views have never been excelled as specimens of artistic photography. My facilities are not surpassed by any establishment in America. Catalogues on application.
