This is quite a rare image in that there are two stereo images on one plate. Mascher stereo Daguerreotypes are usually two separate sixth plate images transposed to form a three dimensional image. The two images on one plate would suggest this image was taken with some kind of Daguerreotype camera with a mirror or prism to transpose the image into a stereo pair.
