Digital Collections

This collection, digitized here in its entirety, consists of 48 stereographs depicting various stages in the industrial manufacture of glass, steel, iron, and salt, published by Underwood & Underwood after 1895. The stereographs are numbered and grouped by subject, reflecting how they would have been marketed and sold by the company as sets intended for educational use. This collection comes from the Department of Chemistry at Oberlin College, where the stereographs are thought to have been purchased and used for teaching purposes.
