Ca.1900 albumen print, half-stereoview crop. By an unknown 3-D photographer who was in China during the Boxer Rebellion, who also traveled in Japan and the Philippines making stereoviews wherever he went.

In bad shape, and gaudily colored by the Kilburn View Company in New Hampshire.

I think I have a better copy somewhere, If I find it, I’ll replace the image. In the meantime, these cutie-pies will hold this spot on the photostream.

Civil War Albumen View Of 3rd Army Corps Federal Infantrymen

In the field with their camp in the background, the soldiers wear shell jackets and fatigue coats with a variety of headgear, with 3rd Corps badge clearly visible on some of the hats. Full equipment including knapsacks and blanket rolls. A combination of Springfield and Enfield muskets with bayonets fixed. One soldier wearing gaiters. Based on their stance, dress and demeanor, they are obviously a group of veterans. Camp visible in the background beneath a heavy pall of smoke, with log hits / chimneys. On the mount at lower right in period ink script, “Soldiers Army of P”. Fine quality, perfect condition, archivally mounted walnut frame. Great Civil War portrait of men who have clearly seen the face of combat. -Live Auctioneers
