This is old stereoptic card is from the Keystone View Company. It has a nice view of the Triborough Bridge, now called the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, and the New York skyline which includes a United States Flag. In the foreground is a large turnout of people at the Municipal Swimming Pool. 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; The Triborough Bridge and Municipal Swimming Pool, Astoria Long Island.
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.
