TURN OVER A STEREOVIEW AND WHAT DO YOU SEE?

 

POSSIBILITY 8

Information about (one of) the previous owner(s) of the view.

 

 

This 1901 H.C. White of a Chinese Marble Boat was probably viewed by many girls

at the “Girls’ Sup. Public School” in Armidale, New England, Australia. 

 

 

This 1903 view of Antwerp (Belgium) was part of the 1913 collection of the

Contra Costa  County Free Library, Martinez, California. 

 

 

You might also find some private collector’s names at the back of a view

 

We sure can imagine you want to put your name upon a view. But please keep it modest! Like the Porter Family did. But  what in the world did William Appleton decide to state that he has given a view to someone on FEB 28, 1927?!

And what to think about mister Haffa. Okay,  identification through an owners’ name makes police work more easy - in case of theft. But you exaggerate when you turn every view into a theft declaration! This guy was a man with great humor. Or with great paranoid tendency.

 

And by now you think: “okay you bore, but what did Appleton give and what did Haffa want to protect from being stolen?”

Here they are:

 

The Memorable 1927 Appleton Gift (yeah, now we get it)

 

 

Stolen from H.D. Haffa
