    Miscellaneous Lot of Two Stereoview Images, circa 1890s. First image is a bird's eye view of an unidentified frontier town with train trestles in the foreground and a lake in the background, by J.H. Hamilton of Sioux City, Iowa, from his Stereoscopic Views of the Northwest series. Second image is a joke outdoor shot of a woman dressed as a desperado in clothes that are far too large for her, as she removes the wallet from the jacket of a suited man wearing a straw boater at gun point. Captioned "A Mail (Male) Holdup in the West," this image was produced by E.W. Kelley of Chicago. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: First- heavy wear to mount; image is age toned and lightly foxed. Good. Second- minor wear to mount corners. Fine.
