    Seven Occupational Stereoviews of Blacks A good collection of images of blacks from "typical" occupations of the late nineteenth century. Includes an excellent image of a group of miners loading phosphate into train cars in Columbia, Tennessee (Keystone); South African miners posing at a De Beers diamond mine entrance (Underwood); a tinted image of black teamsters in Florida; a tinted image of "Mrs. Newlywed's New Wench Cook", and a striking image from the Grand Union Dining Hall in Saratoga, New York showing a legion of black waiters standing at attention at a long row of freshly-set tables with Charles Bierstadt imprint on verso. Also offered together with two obligatory watermelon scenes -- one with an elderly man carrying two watermelon's under his arms by Underwood, along with a colored image of three children inspecting a watermelon bearing the caption "I bet dis am a Good One."
