Tragic Stereoscope story:revised

On impulse I stopped at my new favorite antique store (favorite because they will barter down to prices that are more in my range and many times have prices that are so reasonable I don’t feel the need to barter.) I found that my store had a new supply of stereoscope cards.  The last time I was there, I got a stereoscope and a small pile of cards to go with it.  Those cards, I arranged into a story seen here.

Most of my new cards can be added to the existing cards and they create my new revised story…not so tragic.
