Name/Title[Stereographic view of Ouray, Colorado]
About this objectThis is a stereographic view showing settlement and construction in the town of Ouray, Colorado. In the foreground, a log cabin frame is partially complete, while finished buildings with gabled roofs recede along a slope descending from the camera’s vantage point. Trees are interspersed among these buildings. At the base of the slope, or hill, buildings are clustered along what appears to be a road. This road loops further into the distance, and some additional buildings are visible along its farther side. Behind these last buildings, a group of mountains rise with tree-covered or bare and rocky sides, with trees especially visible on the face of the peak at the leftmost side of the image. According to an inscription on this stereograph’s verso, these are the “White House” mountains.
