Image shows a group of approximately 25 men and women posed around a pair of cannon on the summit of Little Round Top. Visible in foreground is what may be a marker of some sort, possibly a flank marker.  There also appears to be a sign attached to the trunk of the tree at left, above the visitors’ heads.

The male subjects wear dark suits and hats (some are straw hats), while the women are all nicely dressed, with a pair of attractive women at front wearing attractive striped dresses; another wears a white dress. Three of the ladies carry parasols.

Detail on the image is good but the contrast could be a little darker. Mount shows some scattered soiling and 2 tears, at upper right and lower right. The one at top right extends from the upper margin and crosses below the upper right corner of the image. Corners of the mount are round and show some wear.

Image size is 9 ¼” x 7 ¼” and comes mounted on dark heavy stock that meas. approx. 12.00 x 10.00 inches. At lower right of image is, “Tipton / Photo”.

On reverse in period ink is, “Little Round Top – Sept 7” 86”, along with W.H. Tipton’s Battlefield Views photographer’s imprint.  [ld]
