Rare 1930s New York City Empire State Building aerial close-up real photo stereo view - the then new mid-town Manhattan art deco colossus completed by Shreve, Lamb & Hammon in May 1931 - shown capped with the dirigible airship mooring mast which became King Kong's perch in the famous movie. When this photo was taken, the Empire State Building was the tallest building in the world. Now it is once again the largest building in New York City. Includes descriptive paragraph on the back.
Curve mounted negative #34174 published by Keystone View Company of Meadville PA; New York; Chicago IL & London. Copyright is undated.
3-D EFFECT: Curved mounted real photo card creates an exceptional 3-D effect through the stereo viewer.
PHOTO NOTE: The actual albumen (sepia toned) real photo images are clean, crisp, sharp and in good condition. Curved cards do not always scan or photo well. The close-up view is sharper than the gallery view, and the actual images viewed through a stereo viewer are EVEN sharper than they appear in the photo images. The grainy texture is not present in the original photos. Any light scratches and small defects are accentuated by the photo process, and are imperceptible through the stereo viewer. Bright spots and shiny areas are all reflections from the camera flash, and do not appear on the actual photos.
CONDITION NOTE: This card is in excellent to near mint condition.
