( 634 ) Vintage Keystone View Co. Stereoview Photo Cards & Viewer - Big Set For Sale634 Keystone viewcards from the Tour Of The World Series. Do not know the particular Volume numbers as the box covers are all in tatters except the one pictured. We were told it started as a full set with others added with time. The boxes that the cards are in are also quite worn. The cards are all in great condition, some show some yellowing from age. These are some very cool old pictures, the detail in the old photography is amazing ! All have a great description on the back & caption on the front. Showing scenes from all over the world. They are designed to be used with a viewer but also are pretty amazing to look at with a magnifier. These do not appear to be in any particular order, You sort 'em ! We believe the viewer is from Keystone also, but is not tagged as such. Coming with what is seen in pics. I have added some random pics for idea of what is coming. ( & yes, They are supposed to be curved ! ) As I was looking through & counting I saw cards from :North America, Central America, South America, Caribbean & Cuba, Africa, Great Britain, Ireland, Western Europe, Balkans, Africa, India & Nepal, Russia, China & many more ! A true World Tour.Info found on the 'net :
Stereoviews or stereo cards have two nearly identical images mounted side by side. When looked at through a stereo viewer they give a three-dimensional image. Most popular from 1854 to 1938, they were produced in vast quantities, and many are of historical interest. They usually measure about 3 ½” x 7”.
Numbering of the stereocards :
* begins with the letter V, the photo was originally an Underwood & Underwood view
* begins with the letter W, the photo was originally an H. C. White view
* ends with the letter T, the photo is part of one of Keystone’s “Tour of the World” sets.
On some views a number will appear in the upper center of the stereograph. This is a “set” number. It is the position of that view in its particular boxed set.This is a heavy package ( over 30 lbs ) any shipping overages will be refunded.
