A Look Inside
Oversize card-mounted albumen print of the Canisteo, NY flood of 1889. With letterpress identification and title on the card, "A. B. Stebbins, Photographer, Canisteo, N.Y. / Views of Canisteo's Great Flood, June 1, 1889." The card, probably trimmed, measures 5.5 x 7 inches (14x18 cm).
An great image showing a building whose interior and structure has been revealed to us in cross-section by a collapsing wall, a result of the flood whose waters still engulf it.
Image and card have dirt and stains.
