    Stereoviews: Lot of Nine Featuring Views of the First Annual Encampment of the Sioux Fishing Club of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 1879. Each card measures 7" x 4" with W.H. Tipton & Co., Photographers, Gettysburg, Pa. studio imprints on the verso of each card. This fabulous lot includes nine of the original ten stereo cards in the set of scenes from the First Annual Encampment of the Sioux Fishing Club held at Camp Sycamore, Point of Rocks, Maryland from July 21 to 25, 1879. The verso of each card has a printed list of the ten scenes in the series and each is signed in ink "G. H. Buehler". The stereo views clearly show the details of the men's uniforms (a bibbed shirt with the letter "S" applied to the front), their tents, a wide shot of the entire encampment, the men eating, and various other posed shots. The detail is quite remarkable, easily showing small points of interest like musical instruments, fishing gear, and one member with a GAR medal pinned to his chest. All examples are in fine condition. This cataloger was able to find records of the Sioux Fishing Club holding annual encampments through 1929.
