This sepia toned photograph offers a bird's eye view of the north eastern part of Vicksburg, Mississippi from the courthouse. Trees and buildings are visible. The image appears to have been taken from the cupola of Vicksburg’s famous Court House. The image displays post-Civil War Vicksburg as well the Mississippi River and bluff in the distance. The photograph is faded. The handwritten caption beneath reads “No. 1, Bird’s Eye View of the North Eastern Part of Vicksburg from the Court House.”
