About this artwork

Text printed on reverse of stereocard:

There is not to be found in this country, perhaps in the world, a more strikingly wonderful and beautiful freak of Nature than the Watkins Glen. Differing essentially in all its characteristics from any other remarkable locality of Natural interest, it has as distinct an individuality as the Falls of Niagara or the Mammoth Cave.
