Stereo View Card ALBUMEN Ladies 1900 E W Kelley Rau "A Dainty Toilet"

Stereo cards allowed their viewers to travel every corner of the world. The three dimensional effect stereo views offered were just like being there! If the images are detailed and crisp, this is an added bonus. Such is the case with this stereo view.

E. W. Kelley, Publisher, offered many interesting stereo cards depicting life situations. This is one such card and is titled "A Dainty Toilet." Per the bottom of the card, it states "Copyrighted 1900, by William H. Rau. 4500." This setting is quite a personal glimpse of that era! I immediately grabbed my jeweler's loupe so as to not miss any detail. The two young ladies clad in their bloomers and corsets are getting dressed, and is quite an eye opener as to their undergarments.

This glossy albumen stereo view detail is amazing. A small portion of the right hand side top of the picture is peeled off but does not compromise the picture itself. There is no writing on the back. In the early 1880s another renown publisher found that thicker mounts were easier to stack if curved, plus helped to reduce the glare when viewing a glossy mount. This is one such card.
