This photograph shows the arrival James McCosh as president of Princeton in 1868. In the nineteenth century Princeton students could choose from a variety of photographs for the photograph albums and collections. This image is a stereoscopic photograph that would be viewed using a stereoscope. Similar to a Viewmaster, the stereoscope would create the illusion of depth by presenting each eye with a separate image.
