An image scanned from a stereoscopic view of logs covering a large expanse of a river. Writing on the back appears to say "Log Sack." Text on the edges of the image does not seem to identify the location or photographer, but reads, "Picturesque Views, Novelties of Ancient and Modern Art, Wonders of Ancient Ruins, Of all Countries, Architecture and Landscape, Mountain, Valley and Stream." Text at the bottom of the image says, "With the Stereoscope, by the fireside, one can wander through strange cities and sunny valleys, over bleak mountains, or delve among the wonderful ruins of the past."
