Rare piece of history discovered in an old stereogram
A rare 1870s stereogram of indian chief Manuelito by Henry Hiester (pictured here below with his wagon) has been discovered recently in a donation to New Mexico's museum.
The Museum of New Mexico obtained Hiester's photographs in the 1960s with a donation known as the Hiester/Melander Brothers Collection. Although the image Kosharek first saw had nothing written on it, the envelope that held the actual glass-plate negative was inscribed, possibly in Hiester's handwriting, to say, "Manuelito and Cayetanito."
