This is a stereograph of New Mexico Native American's entitled "Indian Life in New Mexico". A stereograph consists of two identical or nearly identical photos, paired to produce a single, three dimensional image when viewed through a stereoscope. The most common stereographs are card mounted, and were first produced in the 1850's. The height of their popularity was between 1870 and 1920. Oliver Wendell Holmes invented a hand held stereoscope in 1859. The stereographs were usually made of popular tourist sites, exotic locations that the average person would probably never visit, animals and other items of interest. These stereographs enabled everyone to see what before only the wealthy and privileged could afford. This view shows three Native American's from an unidentified New Mexico tribe outside a teepee, apparently just relaxing doing much of nothing. They appear to be in a prairie setting, with some rolling hills in the background. An old covered wagon, minus the canvas top, sits to the right of the teepee. The card is in very good condition, no bent edges, creases or stains. This image has been colorized and is very clear. If you collect stereographs, this is a nice example of an early 1900's view that won't break the bank.
