    They were merchants at Faneuil Hall in Boston. "Messrs. Winn Ricker & Co., commision merchants, make a specialty of hotel and club trade, at their establishment at 93-95 Faneuil Hall Market, and many a first class steward makes a specialty of trading with Messrs. Winn Ricker & Co. for their fruit and produce is invariably fresh and the best of its kind, and every attention and courtesy is given to each customer." from www.google.com/books/edition/Home_Journal/saA_WHTOxbEC?hl...

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/efo Thank you for your interest in this stereo mystery set. Can I ask how you determined that Winn Ricker & Co. might be the store pictured?

    That's correct - I'm so sorry about the error. I went and put my text on the above.

    Pretty darn cool. By pressing L and going to full screen mode, crossing my eyes, eventually a combined image was created like looking at stereograms. I could move my head side to side and get the 3D effect.

    There's a sign saying "Soups." So this is in an English-speaking country. Behind this sign are what look like cans. According to www.forbes.com/pictures/lmj45ljli/campbells-soups-first-c... Campbell introduced the first canned soup in 1895.
