The other box (Vol III) contains 35 sequentially numbered cards, 73 - 108 with no numbers missing. These cards also feature both geographic and personnel photographic cards all of Military significance, including Major General Baden Powell on horseback (photo 1), and General Sir George White.

These interesting and rare sets come together with an Underwood & Underwood Stereoscope viewer, The Perfecscope, Patented in 1883 and dating to circa 1900.

Underwood & Underwood was an early producer and distributor of stereoscopes and stereoscopic images. The company was founded in 1881 in Ottawa, Kansas, by two brothers, Elmer Underwood and Bert Elias Underwood.

By 1887, they had outgrown their original office in Ottawa and moved to New York City. Offices were also opened in Canada and Europe. In 1891, Bert learned how to operate a camera and thus the firm of Underwood & Underwood Publishing entered a new merchandising sphere. Around 1900, Underwood & Underwood introduced boxed sets, with specific themes, such as education and religion, and travel sets depicting popular tourist areas of the world, and this is one of those most interesting sets.

The company ceased business in the 1940s.
