w00t!!!!, as Alex would say.
Waterbury stereoview
I'm soon to be the proud owner of 4 stereoviews of downtown Waterbury. These went up on e-bay just a few minutes before my regular check for such things. I circumvented the usual pitched bidding war with my nemesis Squire.Jonn by using the "Buy It Now" option. (Don't ask what I paid. It's worth it to me.)

Unlike the postcards I've been accumulating which go back to around 1900 or so, these photos are from the 1870s and show buildings that I've read about but have never seen. Popping these into my antique viewer will provide a sneak preview of my longterm hobby project of creating a 3D model of the Brass City. My own private time machine.
