Early 1900's Stereograph of Eskimo Women
Item #: AA3216
This is a stereograph of Alaskan Eskimo women entitled Squaw Traders-Alaska circa 1900 - 1910. A stereograph consists of two identical or nearly identical photos, paired to produce a single, three dimensional image when viewed through a stereoscope. The most common stereographs are card mounted, and were first produced in the 1850's. The height of their popularity was between 1870 and 1920. Oliver Wendell Holmes invented a hand held stereoscope in 1859. The stereographs were usually made of popular tourist sites, exotic locations that the average person would probably never visit, animals and other items of interest. These stereographs enabled everyone to see what before only the wealthy and privileged could afford. This view shows Eskimo women along a shore line, apparently trading among themselves. They appear to be sitting on a rocky shore line, with a mountain range on the shore opposite them. The card is in very good condition, no bent edges, creases or stains. This image is colorized and is very clear. If you collect stereographs, this is a nice example of an early 1900's view that won't break the bank.
