A Rare unpublished home-made stereoview showing the aftermath of the great Chicago Fire of 1871. Take note that either photo is different, showing a panoramic photograph cropped by the photographer.

The Great Chicago Fire was a conflagration that burned from Sunday, October 8, to early Tuesday, October 10, 1871, killing hundreds and destroying about 3.3 square miles (9 km2) in Chicago, Illinois. Though the fire was one of the largest U.S. disasters of the 19th century, the rebuilding that began helped develop Chicago as one of the most populous and economically important American cities.

This photograph gives a natural raw look of Chicago DURING the disaster. You can make out smoke bellowing from structures. Image was likely taken from a hot air balloon or from the balcony of a building.
