Description
Stereocard / stereograph taken by Glenwood photographer P.P. Johnson. The image is of 2 people on a boat on a lake. There are branches in the foreground. The other side of the lake appears to be fairly flat and free of trees. A handwritten note on the front reads: "Fishing on Lake Minnewaska" and a note on the back says "Eagle's Point on Lake Minnewaska" but it does not look like Eagle's Point. It may have been taken from just below Eagle's Point looking north west. Stereographs are dual images meant to be viewed through a stereoscope. The images are slightly different from each other, and when seen through a viewer, produce a three dimensional effect.
