Antique Underwood Stereoview Cards Complete Box Set 1-100 & Underwood Viewer

ANTIQUE UNDERWOOD STEREOVIEW CARDS COMPLETE BOX SET 1-100 & UNDERWOOD VIEWER

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THROUGH THE STEREOSCOPE, c1902

Description:

A complete box set of 100 stereoview cards, published by Underwood & Underwood in 1902-1903. Each card is numbered sequentially from 1 to 100 and is accompanied by a detailed description of the image itself and its importance to be included within such an exclusive set, which forms an extensive and detailed depiction of life and culture in The United States of America at the start of the 20th Century.

Views include Architecture, Native Peoples, Black Americans, the Natural Landscape (see photo 6), Famous Landmarks and People including President and Mrs Roosevelt at home at the White House (see photo 3).

All of the cards have been photographed, and one in particular through the accompanying Underwood & Underwood manufactured Sunsculpture stereoscopic viewer - of a scectacular frozen landscape below the ice-bound American Falls, Niagara. Hopefully this illustrates the clarity with which the cards can be viewed, but sadly can not fully capture the 3D effect.

Underwood & Underwood was an early producer and distributor of stereoscopes and stereoscopic images. The company was founded in 1881 in Ottawa, Kansas, by two brothers, Elmer Underwood and Bert Elias Underwood.

By 1887, they had outgrown their original office in Ottawa and moved to New York City. Offices were also opened in Canada and Europe. In 1891, Bert learned how to operate a camera and thus the firm of Underwood & Underwood Publishing entered a new merchandising sphere. Around 1900, Underwood & Underwood introduced boxed sets, with specific themes, such as education and religion, and travel sets depicting popular tourist areas of the world, and this is one of those most interesting sets.

The company ceased business in the 1940s.
