Federal soldiers in line to get picture-ambrotype

Quarter Plate Tintype View of a Large Group of Federal Soldiers Standing in Line Outside a Photographers Studio. Identified as the 12th New Hampshire Inf. at Point Lookout, Md. Soldiers wear a variety of uniforms, all facing the camera. Large sign on top of the clapboard building at left “Ambrotypes.” Another slightly larger, building in center with large front windows, also probably a photographer’s studio.
