      There is a typo in your item description. It should be "Temple" not "Temble". You've got it write in the tags. Also, "shiba". Perhaps the author made the mistake originally, but I think this should be cleaned up for the public -- it will help you in web searches etc.

      Here's a copy of the stereoview on Flickr, which pegs the date as 1905:

      Yes, it's a typo on our catalogue. I'll drop the team an email. Thanks for the stereoscope - very nice.
