Crimean War in Miniature

Here's a cool postcard I picked up somewhere. I'm guessing I got it on a trip to Gettysburg, PA. The ink on the back looks like "Greystone's Store[?] and Emporium Gallery." A google search tells me there is now The American History Store at that address. Some places refer to it as "Greystone's American History Store," so I'm guessing that's where I got it. I haven't been to Gettysburg since 1997 or so.

Anyways, this postcard shows a nice layout of Crimean War era British figures by Imperial Productions. The back side of the card tells what the various figures are.
