Stereoviews are the primary source for pictorial images of early Springfield. They originated in the 1850's, and remained popular until about 1900. Since that was a very fast-moving era in Springfield, they can be the only pictorial source of many buildings.
This page is an attempt to document the stereoviews of Springfield, Massachusetts. I will list the company making the stereoview, any information I can find about that company, and the "checklist" that is provided on the reverse side.
Click on each of the links below to explore the stereoview checklists, along with the actual images of the items in my own collection.
