This is a composite albumen photograph of the 13th Amendment Congressional Signers.
The oval collage of politicians shows Vice President Hannibal Hamlin at the top, Speaker of the House Schuyler Colfax at the center, and President Abraham Lincoln at the bottom. Surrounding them on the outer edges are images of the 38 Senators; the inner area shows the Congressmen. The lower border includes the usual wording, “Entered According to Act of Congress in the year 1865 by Powell & Co…New York.”
This is the larger and most desirable format.
