World War Through the Stereoscope


World War Through the Stereoscope


Stereoscopic slides from the Library’s Rare Book Room collection depict World War I scenes with descriptions, including images of trenches and battlefields, armaments, soldiers and dignitaries.

A Stereoscope is a device by which two photographs of the same object are taken at slightly different angles and then are viewed together, creating a three dimensional (3D) impression of depth and solidity.
