The Chapman Museum will host a talk on stereo view photographers, “Not Stoddard: Stereoviews,” on Tuesday, June 21 at 7 pm.
People often mistakenly assume that S. R. Stoddard was the only landscape photographer in the region, but he was just one of several who produced stereographs in the mid-to-late 19th century.
Presented by Bob Bayle and Tim Weidner, this program will feature 90+ stereo views by George W. Conkey, George S. Irish, A. Orr & Son, L.H. Fillmore of Ticonderoga and others, along with biographical information and other examples of their landscape photography. Included are many views of Lake George and the Hudson River between Luzerne and Glens Falls.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information call (518) 793-2826 or visit the Chapman Museum website.
The Chapman Museum is located at 348 Glen Street in Glens Falls.
