Horseshoe Falls Ice Cave Stereoview c1870 Niagara Falls Ontario Canada Art C1468:
"Ice Grotto under Horse Shoe Falls."
Published by Bernard G. Surdam & Hawley C. White at 305 Broadway, New York City, where they sold stereoscopes, stereoviews, and lenses.
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.
Will be shipped safely and securely! All items are protected in archival sleeves and packaged in rigid cardstock.
