Delaware Co. Stereo Optic views

This stereo optic view of the remains of a burned house is from the late 1860's. The house was restored and today still stands in Delco with a Pa. State Historical marker. Any guesses where this house is?


Stereo Optic Views

       Stereo Optic views of Delaware County are very rare the one above from my collection is quite early from the 1860's. The views became popular right after the Civil War and remained so till the mid 1890's. In some 45 years of collecting I have only collected about 15 views. There is a whole series of Chester City stereo views I have seen advertised for sale. I have never seen one. Lets have some guesses on the one above.!
