A fascinating view of an iron foundry in this Keystone Stereoview "Modern Pig Iron Machine at rest, Pittsburgh, PA" number 6523 with informative text on reverse.

Keystone View Company was founded by B. L. Singley, who had once been a salesman for Underwood & Underwood, and trained with (or was inspired by) Jame Davis of B. W. Kilburn. He started his own company in 1892 in Meadeville, Pennsylvania. By using very aggressive sales techniques, he soon outgrew his competitors, and then absorbed them all. By 1905 Keystone was the largest stereographic company in the world. The company survived until 1963.

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.
