Gettysburg battlefield stereoview by Mumper, captioned “View on Granite Spur.”  This is a Little Round Top view, looking towards the northwest.  In the foreground are stone breastworks.  The photographs are very clear, with sharp details, though lightly faded at the upper 1/3 portions along the horizon.  The backside has a clean surface with three markings.  The first is a period ink writing “#239.  North Slope” in addition to a Mumper company stamp and at the opposite end an ink stamp “Ella Newton.”  The cardstock is very good, with rounded corners and light foxing along the edges.  The card is slightly bowed.

The Mumper family owned a photographic studio in Gettysburg and Littlestown from 1864-1948.  Founder Levi Mumper was a Civil War veteran who served in the 127th Pennsylvania Infantry.  He lived in Gettysburg and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery.  Like William Tipton, he produced popular photographs of Civil War battlefields, to include stereoviews in the late 1800s.  [JC]
