American Museum Stereoview

STEREOVIEW. Very early (1851-1855) view of Barnum's Museum taken from the NW corner of Ann Street, showing St. Paul's Church and the museum facade. It is impossible to establish in this view whether the 1853 addition to the museum incorporating the Chemical Bank to the south has taken place. This would have more precisely helped date the image.
