Black and white stereograph card with double image affixed to orange card. Publication information is printed on pink paper on the back of card and the title is handwritten in ink. It is difficult to tell where this view is looking east from, but there were not very many high points in the city, so it could be from one of the tall church steeples.
The photographer of this image, O. Pierre Havens, was born in Ossining, New York. He moved to Savannah in 1872, opening a photography studio in partnership with J. N. Wilson. He later took over the business from Wilson. In 1888, he relocated to Jacksonville, Florida, where he maintained a studio until his death in about 1912. Like many commercial photographers in America during the late nineteenth century, Havens was as occupied with publishing and marketing his photographs as he was in making them.
No identification mark or number appears on card.
