    Description

    Pristine George Barker Stereoview of Wigwam Interior, 1893. Prize-winning photographer and view publisher George Barker operated a successful studio in Niagara, New York for more than 30 years. During that time, he issued over 600 views on paper and glass, primarily landscapes. He also published views purchased from other photographers. This image is from that latter number, and features the interior of a wigwam, in which a woman sits holding an infant in a cradle, and venison dries over a wood fire. Titled "Wild Life - Interior of Wigwam - Drying Venison." Barker died shortly after this image was taken, and although the front of this stereocard bears Barker's logos and mottos, his entire collection was purchased by Underwood & Underwood of New York, and a notice testifying to this fact is printed on the verso.

    Condition: Bright and clean, with only minor wear to mount corners. Very fine.
