Offered is this very nice old stereo card which was copyrighted in 1895 by Strohmeyer & Wyman, Publishers in New York. It is a double picture meant to be used in a "Stereoscope" for entertainment. These cards when viewed would display the image in a 3 dimensional view, which was realistic. People during the late 1800's and early 1900's didn't have television or even radios, and would entertain themselves and neighbors by viewing a box full of cards for the evening. They were extremely popular, and many antique versions of the stereoscope are available from auctions today. The cards, which covered a large variety of subject matter reflected the times and often civil war cards and "black Americana" cards can be found today. This card which is entitled, "Say ! am dis yo' cat?" was meant as a humorous comment of the times. It was published in 6 different languages, including Russian and German. This card is in excellent condition and is not faded, but does have a pleasant, rich patina over the entire surface.
