NEW EDUCATIONAL SERIES
Buffalo, New York

New Educational Series was a line of fair quality copy views of mostly United States scenery that proliferated during the 1890ís. Issued from Buffalo, New York, two different series titles were printed. One is the "Liberty Brand" and the other is the "American and Foreign Views" series. There does not seem to be any difference in the two, other than the series names. Their views have been the subject of some confusion, due to the prominently displayed "Sold by Canvassers" on many of the views. This tricks some into believing that Canvassers was the name of the company. In fact, this simply denotes that the views were only available through canvassing salesmen. Unfortunately over time many of these stereoviews have faded and the original titles are very hard to read.

Yellowstone is well represented by the New Educational Series. At over 70 different Yellowstone photos, there is no "copy view" company with more Yellowstone views. Almost without exception, the images were purchased from T. W. Ingersoll. However, at least two geyser scenes were originally photographed by F. J. Haynes. About half of the Yellowstone views are numbered (still showing their original photographers numbering), while the rest have titles only.


Paul Rubinstein Collection

..1111. M. H. S. Hotel, 446 feet long.

This view of the National Hotel comes from the American & Foreign Views series. This image is undoubtedly a T. W. Ingersoll photo but does not credit him. These views remain very common today, unfortunately the quality is poor and fading is often the result.


Paul Rubinstein Collection

..1132. Diana's Terrace-Jupiter terrace in distance.

The other style of New Educational Series are the Liberty Brand views. This image of Diana Terrace like the one above is most likely a T. W. Ingersoll photo.


Paul Rubinstein Collection

Grand Falls. Near view.

This particular photograph of Lower Falls is identical to one that was part of T. W. Ingersollís Blue Letter "B" Series. It can be seen on Ingersollís page on this website.


Paul Rubinstein Collection

1161 Golden Gate Road, along the Canon.

This orange mount Liberty Brand view is identical in publisher credit to those issued by T. W. Ingersoll on tan mounts. This view could have been shown on either page..


Paul Rubinstein Collection

Tourists riding on Lower Canon Trail.

New Educational Series views were sometimes color tinted. The quality however was not top notch. Above is such an example.


Paul Rubinstein Collection

Loaded 6 Horse Coach and Hotel.

Another example of a poor attempt at color tinting. This view is of the front of the National hotel at Mammoth. A popular subject among stereographers, as many of them stayed there during their Yellowstone visits.
