Product Description

Execution of the Lincoln Conspirators. “The Scaffold” by Alexander Gardner. Late 19th Century Albumen Photograph taken from the original glass plate negative. 6-1/4 x 4-1/2 in., placed on a titled backing sheet.

Four empty chairs sit atop the scaffold, as reporters and witnesses gather. Soldiers guarding the event lounge on top of a wall, while a rotund man in a top-hat inspects the scaffold beneath. This evocative image is one of the more difficult of the hanging series to find!

Excellent condition, minor soiling at edge, well clear of photograph.
