Stereopticon view no. 11836, Wringing wet, Atlantic City, N.J.

Littleton NH: B. W. Kilburn [studio], 1897. Standard format, two nearly identical views on 3.5x7 inch thick cardstock veneered with a pink printed coating, photos reproduced sepia, these show, ankle-deep in seawater, a 30-ish woman in bulky black swim cloak and leggings, wringing water from hem; she is watched by a grinning boy in middle distance. Far distance, throngs of bathers, a pier, warehouses. The pink surface is dust-soiled, the sepia prints show a couple faint small pressure marks, back of card similarly soiled with a light crease. Kilburn advert on this backing.
