Stereoscope Card by Charles Emery 1880, Evening View Main St Silver Cliff Colorado
Rare antique stereoscope card by master pioneer photographer Charles Emery. This 3d photo is a cityscape image in a series Charles Emery produced called "Views of Rocky Mountain Scenery, Scenes along the line of Denver & Rio Grande Railroad", I have several others rare Charles E Emery stereoviews listed too.
The title of the photograph is handwritten on the back which intimates that these may be his first originals. This particular one is a late afternoon winter view of Main St Silver Cliff Colorado and the Sangre de Cristo range in the background. The clock on the telegraph pole near the mint appears to state 3:20 pm. The scene shows store fronts plumbing and gas fitting store, the mint, the Druggists W L Allen and a bank. There are also telegraph poles on the left which put this around 1880 as are the other images.
Some of Charles E Emerys works are currently on exhibition at The Annapolis Collection Gallery, Annapolis, MD.

All our items are vintage/antiques and most have had decades of use. A buyer of vintage objects should assume a baseline of wear. I am always honest and clear in my descriptions and always endeavor to point out any flaws to avoid disappointment but I cannot disclose every minute sign of use on our items as it would be impossible to do so. You should assume these are present unless we specify otherwise here at the beginning of the condition report.
Please do not hesitate to request additional photographs should you wish to inspect the item in more detail before purchasing it or if you have any questions at all that are not answered in my description. I normally respond to enquiries very quickly.
