Antique Vintage Picture of Inauguration of Abraham Lincoln March 4 1861

Recently I bought this antique photo of the Inauguation of Abraham Lincoln March 4th 1861. It is from that time period of the late 1800's and is a Steel Plate engraving photo and is probably a memorial piece sold some time after Lincoln's death.

Though it does not add to the value I find it a great addition that the back has a stamp of the St. Marks Church in Duluth Minnesota and in the center says " In God We Trust ". St. Marks is has mainly a black congregation and has been an important part of Duluth for many years.

Thanks for stopping by to see another found treasure. This will be added to my antique shop case or sold on eBay.  Grace
