VIRGINIA CITY, FROM CEDAR HILL. Number 707. Stereo view. Albumen print. San Francisco: Lawrence & Houseworth, n.d. . A Lawrence & Houseworth stereo view of Virginia City, Nevada, from Cedar Hill, copyright 1865. The Mariposa Mill at the head of 7-mile canyon is in the foreground. The Library of Congress holds only one photo from this pair of stereo views. It is from a later card (part of Houseworth's "Gems of California Scenery"). Ours is an earlier -- probably the earliest -- printing (later cards have the Thomas Houseworth & Co. imprint) and has a much better, sharper image. Fine. Extremely rare. (#167526).
