And again I have another batch to share with everyone. It is a small group of stereoviews, which are something I find very interesting as I had never heard of them before working here. For those who are not familiar with them, they are those cards with two images. The idea is that in a viewer, the photos line up to create a 3-D effect to your eyes, and so these were very popular when introduced.
It’s been a while since I’ve reported on the returning stolen pieces, but I am happy to say that they continue to come in. And some people have been extremely kind and sent extra pieces in to help rebuild our collection. Here are some of the pieces have that have come back in the last month.
