And We Just Went Smashed

I found this set of images interesting because of how mundane it seems, and also the information printed on it.

Ingersoll View Company St. Paul, Minn.  U. S. A.
High Grade Original View Sold only by Subscription.

I created three frames in this GIF, the first is background, the second slides the left photo over the right, the third slides the right photo over the left. I aligned the photos using the tree in the center of the frame. The overlap of the photos and the text really shows how misaligned the original photos were.

The Library of Congress has several stereograph cards by this company, but I didn’t find this particular one. I don’t know how often subscription photos were sent out. or what the general quality of the subscriptions may have been.
