Back reads, "Pomfret Centennial - June 15, 1870." The stereoview shows people standing outside in front of a house with croquet set up in the yard. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2005-6-11: Routlege's Handbook of Croquet, published in England in 1861, inspired a wave of popularity that swept right across the Atlantic. Croquet equipment was advertised in the New York Clipper in 1862 and two rulebooks were published in 1865.
