Black & white framed image shows a triple arch on one of the streets of Buffalo, New York. It is understood that the arch was erected for the 1897 GAR Convention.

The central arch spans the street while two small arches span the sidewalks on either side. The arch is white throughout with the supports having alternating stripes which must be red and white.

The central arch is decorated across the top with a panoply of US flags above each support. From left to right across the top of the arch are life size cut-outs of a sailor, a cannon, a cavalryman, an infantryman in a frock coat, another cannon and an infantryman in an overcoat. Three portraits adorn the face of the central arch President Grant on the left, President Lincoln on the right and President McKinley in the center. The wording across the face of the arch reads “THEY FOUGHT FOR THE LIBERTY WE NOW ENJOY.” The supports have a patriotic shield at center. The left support has a sign with two shaking hands and reads “ERECTED BY THE COLORED CITIZENS OF BUFFALO IN HONOR OF THE G.A.R.” The right support also has a sign with two shaking hands that reads “FT. WAGNER, OLUSTEE, PETERSBURG, HONEY HILL.”

The smaller arch over the sidewalk on the left is decorated with “1861 COL. SHAW.” The arch over the right sidewalk is decorated with “1865 GEN. BUTLER.”

The street intersection is not known but there are buildings along each side and a church in the background. The street that runs across the foreground shows trolley tracks. Among the people in the street are at least a dozen men on bicycles as well as two or three carriages and several people on foot.
