A Glance at the Past


Welcome to the world of 3D as seen a hundred years ago. This device which can be bought on the street for $80 (more or less) lets you see a postcard image of a scene from two slightly different angles. The result is a 3D view of the world in the early part of the Twentieth century. Many scenes were of far off lands, some scenes were religious in nature while other images were of then famous people. Imagine seeing Howard Taft or Teddy Roosevelt in 3D. Whatever. Stereo images are highly collectible as is the viewer. While the images are not animated, the sensation that you will receive when viewing is one of being present in a scene from another time. Know that.
