3-D EFFECT: The 3-D effect of the skyscrapers of Manhattan is truly extraordinary!
PHOTO NOTE: The actual images are albumen (sepia-toned) real photos that are clean, crisp, very sharp and in excellent condition - MUCH sharper through a stereo viewer than they appear in the scanned images. Small age-related surface scratches and slight photo wear on the extreme lower border of the left image are accentuated by the scanning process and are virtually imperceptible in the viewer.
CONDITION NOTE: Card is near mint condition - with no tears, creases or visible defects.
