Some of the earliest images of Indianapolis streets and buildings are found as stereoviews, two views of the same subject photographed from slightly different angles. When the mounted side-by-side prints are viewed with a special device called a stereoscope, the images appear to pop off the photograph with a slightly three-dimensional effect. Several photographers made stereoviews of Indianapolis in the 1870s and one of the most prolific appears to be Charles Ingraham, who worked with partner David Claflin in the early 1870s. Specializing in landscapes, the photo gallery documented houses, parks, stores, and churches, including the new Second Presbyterian Church located at the northwest corner of E. Vermont and N. Pennsylvania Streets. This view looks north at the church from E. New York Street with University Park in the foreground. In the distance to the left is the cupola of the Indiana Institute for the Blind.
