...Speaking of Stereocards, I found this interesting example while visiting Texas earlier in the month. It was too bizarre to not take home.


T.W. Ingersoll, 1899

No. 98. "HOLY MOSES! LOOK AT THE GHOST!"

What has such an old fashioned, out of date nonentity as a ghost to do with these three young women, children of the world, devoted to fashion and up to date in everything? Let that spook beware! After the first surprise is over, the girls will rally and will throw things at "it," whatever "it" may be, and if the things do not fly through the ghost, the girls will grow bolder and pull that sheet off him, to see what's inside.
