A collection of forty-four stereographs ca. 1865-1925, all but two of which depict scenes of New Orleans. Local photographers represented include S.T. Blessing (13 images) and W.H. Leeson (23 images), both of whom operated in New Orleans after the Civil War.
Unless otherwise noted, the captions are those printed on the front and/or back of the stereo mount. The name of the series of which the stereograph was a part is also given, if available, along with the stereograph's number within that series. In the case of the Leeson stereographs, captions and series numbers were handwritten on the mount at some earlier date, perhaps by Leeson himself.
