Summary

I'm very excited by this find as it's the only 19th century image of King William's Temple ( http://www.kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/garden-attractions-A-Z/king-williams-temple.htm ) that I have ever seen...This is one of two stereoviews bought from an eBay seller in the US. They are in exceptional condition - I'd warrant that they had never been used...They are from the series "Views of London and its Vicinity" (at that time Kew would not have been considered to be in London) published by The London Stereoscopic Company...I'd put a rough date estimate of 1870s/1880s
