Lifting the image out of its case sometimes reveals a wealth of information concerning the image. In this example, it is written in pencil on the paper liner in the inside back of the case. It reads:
 
Taken in Peru Indiana by H. G. Fetter artist.
E. M. Talbot - Resident Engineer
Robert Allen - Clerk for Beale & Co.
Wm. A. Wilson - Clerking for Talbot
During the winter of 1853 & 1854.
