Scope and Content

The Yosemite Stereoviews by Charles L. Pond collection consists of 31 stereographic prints taken from circa 1871 to circa 1878. Pond, of Buffalo, New York, was an active photographer from 1861 to 1881 and a stereograph publisher from 1869 to 1878. Pond is exceptional among stereographers in appearing in many of his own stereographs, and may be the figure inspecting the big trees in the "Mammoth Trees of Calaveras Co., California" series, a number of which are found in this collection. The collection consists primarily of scenes in Yosemite, including views of Mirror Lake, Yosemite Falls, Vernal Falls, North Dome, South Dome and the Cap of Liberty. Also included are a few scenes in Salt Lake City. Each of the stereographic prints bears the photographer's number, and all were published in Buffalo, New York, and included in the "American Scenery" series, except for one which is part of the "Instantaneous Marine Views, Lake River & Harbor" series. The Yosemite Stereoviews by C.L. Pond are part of the Eugene Compton collection.
Printed captions are reprinted in the container listing. Captions in parentheses appear in manuscript on the stereographs. Captions in brackets have been supplied.
