THORNWARD SERIES
Chicago, Illinois

The Thornward Series was issued by an unknown publisher during the period 1890-1910. It was one of the Montgomery Ward Co. house brands and was sold through them. They issued several series of note such as "Rod & Gun," the Spanish American War and an especially fine Yellowstone series. Their Yellowstone views were scattered among multiple printings and styles that even included a "color tinted" series.


Chimney Cone. Mt. Schurz..

A less common style of Thornward Series view is shown above. This plain beige mount shows a cone at Monument Geyser Basin near Gibbon Meadows..


Ingersoll's Spring.

Most Thornward Series stereoviews have the elaborate side artwork like the view shown above. This one is on a yellowish-tan mount.


Crater of Grand Geyser.

The most common style by the company is this type of a beige mount. The image is of Grand Geyser’s Crater in the Upper Geyser Basin.


Stage Coach Fording, Willow Creek

They did issue a few color tinted views such as the one pictured above. This view of a stagecoach ford is quite a bit better in quality than many other publisher’s colorized views of the day.
