John Jacob Loeffler is one of the great Catskills photographers of all time. He made hundreds of stereoviews of the Catskills throughout the 1870s and 1880s. The photographs, part of the series titled Catskill Mountain Scenery, demonstrate his skill and vision as well as the timeless beauty of the Catskills, being equally compelling today at they were 150 years ago.
I have recently acquired a number of new Catskills photographs by John Jacob Loeffler. They have all been added to the Loeffler gallery, which now contains over 130 of his photographs.
