"Thanks for your comments Alex. It would seem that the St Alban's Abbey and Houses of Parliament views predate my Brewster style viewers, newly acquired!"

"The yellow stereo looks more 1860s (I assume it's a flat mount and square corners.).  But the uncolored one with that style label is typically mid-1850s, as Michael indicates."
