    One of many stereoview I have that I just can't figure out. This piece isn't marked or titled. Depicts a young woman on a bike while on a tight rope with no hands. Has a false background over a small town with a crescent moon. Is this a circus act photo? I was hoping someone may recognize the photo or the photographers work or series.

      Great stereoview subject!

      I don't think it is a circus or daredevil photograph. I believe it is simple a whimsical image that would have been of interest in the 19th century as it is today.
