    If this is Lincoln's funeral procession, this is truly amazing! I can't wait to see the results of a study that will confirm this.

    The funeral hearse of President Lincoln is passing up Broadway, past Grace Episcopal Church at 10th Street. The President's horse drawn catafalque, shrouded in black and decorated with flags and black plumes is a blur, but totally recognizable. The photo was apparently taken from an upstairs window in Mathew Brady's studio across the street. It's curious that Brady or his operator failed to use a high speed emulsion for this historic view.
