The Keystone View Company was a major distributor of stereographic images, and was located in Meadville, Pennsylvania. From 1892 through 1963 Keystone produced and distributed both educational and comic/sentimental stereoviews, and stereoscopes. By 1905 it was the world's largest stereographic
company. In 1963 Department A (stereoviews sold to individual families)
and the Education Departments were closed down, but Keystone continued
to manufacture eye-training stereographic products as a subsidiary of Mast Development Company. In 1972 Mast closed the Meadville manufacturing site.
The company was started in Meadville, Pennsylvania by B.L. Singley, who previously was a salesman for Underwood & Underwood. Benneville Lloyd Singley was born December 8, 1864 in Union Township, Schuylkill County, in southEastern Pennsylvania.
In 1886 Singley came to Meadville, in northwestern Pennsylvania, to
enroll at Allegheny College's preparatory department. College records
list him as a first year prep student for three years in a row; after
1889 his name disappears from college listings. 1889 was the year that Singley married Anna Caraway, whose family lived in Meadville.
The Hall of Fame Annual
states that while Singley was a college student James M. Davis showed
him a stereograph of two silver gray foxes in the woods. Gazing at the
three-dimensional image caused Singley to understand the educational
potential of stereoscopic photography, and enkindled in him a desire to
teach others through the use of steroviews. James M. Davis distributed
the stereoviews of the Kilburn Brothers and Benjamin W. Kilburn.
In 1892 French Creek overflowed its banks and flooded Meadville.
Singley photographed the damage, developed multiple prints of 30
negatives and pasted them on cardboard mounts bearing the name of
Keystone View Company. By 1895 the company had issued approximately 700
different views. In 1898 Keystone began making and selling stereoscopes.
The company expanded rapidly and by 1905, the year the Keystone View
Company was incorporated, it was the largest business of its kind in the
world. All of the manufacturing was done in Meadville, but branch
offices were in New York, St. Louis, San Francisco, Portland, Oregon,
Chicago, Toronto, Canada and London, England. Salesmen and photographers
were scattered around the world, and the company was offering 20,000
