"Ten minutes for refreshments." (12849)
Photographed and published by Benjamin West Kilburn (1827-1909). Benjamin is well known for his photojournalism, stereoview publishing company, the invention of a photo gun camera, as well as search and rescue work on Mount Washington.
This is a stereoview (also known as a stereograph or stereoscope card). It was one of the first forms of 3D photography. The images were captured with a special stereoscopic camera, which had two lenses - simulating the view of our left and right eyes. The two, nearly identical pictures were then mounted next to each other (most commonly on a piece of cardstock, glued on as photographs or printed as lithographs). The image could then be seen in three dimensions when viewed through a device known as a stereoscope, stereopticon, and/or televiewer.
Standard-size stereograph, measuring about 3.5 x 7 inches.
