Robert N. Dennis collection of stereoscopic views: Cooper views and Otsego Lake scenery.

Stereographs were a pair of photographs taken at the same moment but from inches apart, so that when viewed through a stereoscopic viewer, there was an illusion of 3D depth to them (like a modern Viewmaster toy). The New York Public Library Digital Collections includes 47 stereographs specific to Cooperstown and Lake Otsego.
