Edwardian POSTCARD: Cute Children + Antique CAMERA & Bicycle TOY, Christmas 1903 | eBay Not a Civil War image, but an amazing picture. Love the camera, and look at the toy sitting on the camera stand! It's a bicyclist!
Absurdly massive view camera designed by George Lawrence to photograph a train near Chicago in 1900. It held an 8" x 4 1/2" glass plate and had a bed that extended about 20'. His studio's slogan was 'The Hitherto Impossible in Photography Is Our Specialty'.
