He took more than forty photographs for stereograph cards, a popular 19th century parlor amusement that allowed people to see three-dimensional views of famous scenes. That people might be interested in such images can be seen in the cards themselves, which capture onlookers strolling amid the ruins. Albee acted quickly. By Aug. Riddle, who spent time photographing the Pennsylvania oil fields, eventually left for Colorado.
The stereograph views differed from other visual media of the day. Commissioning local artists to do sketches that were transformed into engravings, newspapers wanted moments of high emotion: militia soldiers lying dead in city streets, a crowd helping itself to looted whiskey or sacking a private home, people fleeing from gunfire. Instead, Albee and Riddle captured the impact of what was left behind: a massive cleanup that the Pennsylvania Railroad estimated would cost Allegheny County more than four million dollars.
The county eventually paid about 2. While film of the day was too slow to capture the action shown in illustrations, Albee and Riddle may have had other reasons for focusing on what they did. Both specialized in industrial photography. Business leaders were his clients. His pricing of the set also placed it above the means of the average worker.
Albee originally advertised the full series for eight dollars, a large sum in a day when the average laborer made far less than three dollars a day; he later reduced it to six dollars.
