R. Anderson
Lake George, c. 1874

Yellow mount so-called "boudoir" size stereo views. Both this view and the one below are from the same "series", if you will, and attributed to R. Anderson (not listed in Darrah), with hand-written date of about 1874 on the reverse. This view is also identified as a "Birch Bark Dark Room"; the man standing next to it is holding a camera plate-holder in his right hand.

The view below is described on the reverse as a "Camp Scene, Lake George" and noted as being by "R. Anderson Phot." The view shows five men engaged in various man-type "camping" activities. No photographic equipment is evident.

The views have only average contrast, and show minute wear on the mount corners. But I don't think I have ever heard of or seen another example of a birch bark darkroom; and the photographer appears to be unknown. A great addition to an esoteric collection of photographic images. $250.00
