Cute turn-of-the-century Stereoview

I know I said I don’t collect Stereoviews (and I really don’t, except that one series) but this one came along with the Native American portrait of yesterday’s post, and it was sufficiently cute I thought it worth keeping and posting. It’s copyright 1897, by Strohmeyer & Wyman, distributed by Underwood & Underwood. I’d not heard of Strohmeyer and Wyman before, but Underwood & Underwood were a HUGE publisher of stereoviews.

Although it may be a little hard to see (the original card is somewhat faded, especially in the highlights) the little girl in the upper right has cupid wings and a bow-and-arrow.
