Black and white stereograph image of the riverfront and Factor's Walk with the double image affixed to orange backing paper. The title mentions that the view is looking East from the Exchange and that could refer to the Cotton Exchange Building on East Bay Street or the City Exchange Building which was on Bay Street and Bull. The City Exchange had a tall cupola which might have provided a good view of the riverfront.
The stereograph was published by E. and H. T. Anthony of New York. E. Anthony began business in 1842 as a Daguerreotype gallery, and over the years expanded to include photographic supplies and equipment. His brother, H. T., remained a silent partner until 1862, when the company name was changed to recognize his contribution. The company had begun to sell stereographic view cards in 1859. During and after the Civil War, they produced a "War of the Union" collection of stereographic views. They went on to become one of the largest supplier and distributor of photographic equipment and supplies.
9393 appears on the back of card after Views in Savannah, Ga.
