Description : One side has two pictures of a lake with buildings in the background and a fort in the forefront. There is some trees and a boat in the water. The other side has two pictures of a big fancy building with snow on the ground and people and wagons milling about.
Fonctions : Stereoviews were popular in the mid 1800's as a form of entertainment & education. They were also called stereocards or stereographs. The pictures were taken from a camera that had two separate lenses that took two separate photos about 2.5" apart. The object you took a picture of was represented by a pair of images, one taken at an angle a little different than the other. When viewed through a stereoscope the two pictures look like one & the brain perceives the image in 3D. The majority of homes had a stereoscope. Some people used them to find out about other places. There were stereoviews on many different subjects. Stereoviews were used by schools for educational use and were popular in the early 1900's.
