Goldsmith & Lazelle

Goldsmith & Lazelle

This appears to be the largest and most diverse series of Springfield stereoviews by a single photographer. The front of these cards all have a distinct orange color, and the rear are all a distinct pink color.

There are at least three different checklist variations, a number of views with only the photographer listed on the back, some views that only have a small stamp or handwritten note of the photographers, and some views that have a checklist on the reverse, but are not included on the checklist.

Subjects ranged from civic treasures like City Hall, to the mundane, including pictures of fruits and vegetables (presumably at the county fair).

Typical front
