Original stereoview of the fire aftermath at P.T.Barnum's American Museum in New York City.

On July 13, 1865, the American Museum burned to the ground in one of the most spectacular fires New York has ever seen. Animals at the museum were seen jumping from the burning building, only to be shot by police officers. Barnum tried to open another museum soon after that, but that also burned down in a mysterious fire in 1868.

About 7" x 3.5". The back is blank with some light pencil scribble marks. Otherwise in very good antique condition overall with no creases or image loss.

Shipping: First Class (flat photo mailer) or boxed Priority Mail.
