Antique H. C. White Stereoview - Unter den Linden, Berlin, Germany Copyright 1901 C. L. Wasson

$12.00

Fascinating antique stereoview showing men building the Culebra Cut, part of the Panama Canal.

"Where the work is being pushed with greatest energy - the famous Culebra Cut, Panama Canal. Copyright 1907 by H. C. White Co." No. 11518.

H. C. White was one of the top stereoscopic studios of the day, only behind Keystone and Underwood & Underwood in output, but of much better quality. Hawley C. White's specialty was optical glass and he put this to amazing use in producing his views.

Stereoviews were once produced in large quantities, a form of 3D entertainment and a way for people to see exotic or interesting locales far from home using a stereoscopic viewer - like the stereoscope. They are two nearly identical views photographed from a single stereoscope camera with two lens.
