Keystone View Company. The last major player to produce stereoviews, they were in production from the late 1890s up until the mid 20th century. Amazingly, they were still supplying special orders up to 1970. The grey mount views here are high gloss silver gelatin process with exaggerated curve.  They are therefore the sharpest views but the worst to scan.
