This yellow mount stereo view, c. 1870's, has frustrated me since I acquired it years ago. Identified as being by J.R. Martin of Paris, Ill., it is pencil identified on the reverse as being of the "P.& D. R.R. south of Danville."
BUT, the view is looking INTO THE BACK OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S WAGON! We can see two camera cases on the ground, and (please, please) barely see chemical bottles in the shadow of the wagon interior. I can't tell you how many times I have sat and stared at this view, mentally willing the shadow detail to appear! I can't stand it! Help!
Minute wear to the mount corners, else a wonderful, scarce image. Oh, if someone could only find the original negative, and digitally enhance it! $600.00
