Image is mounted on yellow card stock. Mount is marked below image, “709. BIRD’S EYE VIEW OF THE BATTLE-FIELD FROM OBSERVATORY OF SPRINGS HOTEL. NO. 1, LOOKING NORTHEAST”. Markings on sides read, “W.H. TIPTON &CO., GETTYSBURG / VIEWS AROUND GETTYSBURG”. Image is a view looking northeast over the Katalysine Springs bottling works toward the Chambersburg Pike, in the middle ground. Herbst Woods can be seen on the far right. The fence lined road running north to the Pike did not exist in 1863.

The Gettysburg Springs Hotel opened in 1869. It was a Gettysburg Battlefield tourist site in the area of the first day of combat, by Willoughby Run, on the east side of Herr Ridge at the western terminus of the Gettysburg Spring Railroad and Katalysine Springs. The hotel was a wood-framed, four-story main building topped with a two-story square cupola. The cupola is from where Tipton took a series of images in the 1890’s. Many veterans of the battle stayed at the hotel during the reunions. The hotel was demolished by a December 1917 fire. The land that was privately owned became part of the Gettysburg Country Club golf course, until purchased by the National Park Service in 2011.

Image is clear with good contrast. Reverse is blank.  [SL]
