This is old stereoptic card is from the Keystone View Company. It shows the picturesque home where Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare, grew up. Although somewhat large, the cottage is quaint in design having a thick thatched roof and three chimneys and surrounded by dense landscaping. When viewed through a stereoscope viewer, the two identical pictures on the card merge as one and give the illusion of being 3-D. The back of the card has an historic description of the picture on the front with the heading; Anne Hathaway‘s Cottage, Shottery, England.
It measures about 3 3/8” by 7” and is in very good condition with minimal wear. This card has a natural curve to it so it does not lie flat as shown in the photograph.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
