Description

The stereograph contains a black and white image of President McKinley seated at his desk in the White House. On his desk, a large stack of envelopes are tied together. According to the stereograph's additional documentary information, this is the first stereograph to be taken of any President in the White House. The image is adhered to a gray-colored paper card mount, and the card's reverse contains documentary information and the title in six other languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish, and Russian).
