Corduroy 1885 Hampton Beach N.H.
I picked this stereo view card up at the swap meet. How killer is this image! Lines stacked to the horizon and not a surfer in sight! A closer look at the horizon appears to me to be whitewater perhaps an outer bar? The photographers name is A.P. Munger…Titled – Instantaneous Surf View Hampton Village .New Hampshire, here is a similar image created by him. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Instantaneous_Surf_view,_Hampton_Beach,_N.H,_by_A._P._Munger.png
check out this great blog from New Hampshire, the Granite State. http://thegranitestoke.blogspot.com/
And a great view of the same coast in the 21st century, 127 years after A.P. Munger recognized that corduroy stacked to the horizon. Simply utilizing what nature provides.
