Thank you to Peter Hodds, Gorleston-on-Sea, Norfolk, England for providing the stereo view by Archibald Burns, above:

Peter wrote:

Fothergill's Process

"Here is an early Burns stereoview.  It occurred to me that this may be one of the "Fothergill's Process" stereographs that Burns sent to the 3rd PSS Exhibition in December 1858, or perhaps one of the examples which he sent to Photographic News in 1859.

The card stock is certainly of the period and the reverse side is inscribed very neatly and signed. Note that there is an "AW" blindstamp in the corner, which was punched after Burns added the written details"

3rd PSS Exhibition

I have not yet been able to discover exactly which stereo views Archibald Burns entered in the 3rd PSS Exhibition.  The catalogue for this exhibition lists two entries by Archibald Burns.  Each of these entries is described as:

 "10 stereographs: Views of Scotland".
