by Joy, Charles Levi
Salt Lake City: C.L. Joy Photographer, 1915. 20 stereoviews. Albumen photographs [8 cm x 15.5 cm] on gray 'Stereoscopic Views Around the World' mounts [9 cm x 18 cm] Views in nice condition. Charles Levi Joy (1869-1943) began his photography career as a partner of T.E. Hinshaw (Hinshaw & Joy) in the late 19th century before striking out on his own and opening studios in American Fork and Mercur before finally settling in Salt Lake around 1915. His views are uncommon.
This is not a set that we've encountered previously and we are unable to locate any of these views (or this series) in any institutional holdings or any reference known to us. European and North African views that include the Sphinx, Colosseum, Arch of Constantine, Temple of Saturn, St. Peter's Basilica, Pompeii, and other ancient ruins as well as a handful of mountain views.
