BARNES-CROSBY COMPANY
Chicago, Illinois

This Chicago based company produced an extensive fine lithograph stereoview series of United States scenes starting in the late 1890’s and continuing for nearly 20 years. Their issues included "Polychrome Stereo View/World Series/Reproduced from Original Stereoscopic Photograph." Only a few of these lithoviews have been seen as photo stereoviews. Their stereos have also been sold under other company labels. The card quality is low. The company name has also been issued as Barnes & Crosby.

Before founding the Barnes-Crosby Company, George W. Barnes worked alone in Topsham and Brunswick, Maine during the 1870’s; A. B. Crosby worked alone in Lewiston, Maine around the same time. A single view was reported under this imprint, of an unidentified building.

The following three images are the only known Yellowstone views produced by the Barnes-Crosby company. The first two are copy views originally issued by the H. C. White Co. While the third view is of the "Polychrome Stereo View/World Series/Reproduced from Original Stereoscopic Photograph" style.
