Mt. Lebanon Photographer Shares Remarkable Lincoln Collection

"Aspects of Lincoln," a current exhibit at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library in Carnegie, offers viewers a look at what may be every known photograph of the late president.

The earliest photo shows a rangy Chicago lawyer. The last one shows the only known image of Abraham Lincoln lying in his coffin in New York City Hall.

Norman Schumm, 78, of Mt. Lebanon spent three weeks printing the 100 black-and-white photos from copy negatives of Lincoln photographs originally made from 1847 to 1865.

Norm is one of Mt. Lebanon's treasures....a really nice person, great personality and extremely talented in all aspects of photography. He restored and duplicated a rare family photo from 1870 for me some years ago and his photo series of Pittsburgh scenes are really collectors quality.

Try to take in his Lincoln exhibit.
