Description
Stereograph images were most commonly made by using the stereo camera, a machine that took two simultaneous images of the same subject through two lenses placed side by side. By the mid-1850s, collecting and viewing stereographs was very popular. The collection consists primarily of American stereographs by numerous photographers and publishers and several stereofilms of various European locations.
