Churchill Collectables: Boer War Stereoscope Card
By BRIAN KRAPF
This stereoscope card is a photographic image of Churchill as a war correspondent during the Boer War. It was produced in 1900 by an American manufacturer, the Keystone View Company, as part of their Boer War images series. This stereoscope card is highly prized amongst Churchilliana collectors. It is one of the earliest career images of WSC. Also, while other cards from Keystone’s Boer War series are readily available on the open market, it is very difficult to obtain and seldom appears at auction.
