Color tinted image of a NY soldier taken in Williamsburgh, NY.
The image was taken by Biffar’s Photographic Gallery, Williamsburgh, NY. and shows this New York infantryman wearing his overcoat and accoutrements, with color tinting. The state crest is visible on the forage cap. He has his cartridge box slung over the shoulder, beneath the cap, yet able to get to cartridges when needed.
Very good condition, with rounded corners.
