Publication: Newbury through the Stereoscope

My new photo history book "Newbury through the Stereoscope" tells the story of the photographers who photographed my hometown of Newbury in 3D between about 1860 and 1905.  From the earliest commercial photographer to a Primitive Methodist minister who was an avid amateur. The book is a now and then style book which uses 3D anaglyphs to enable 3D viewing with the…See More

"Thanks Michael.  No, I hadn't thought of looking there for a sales list but that's a good idea.  I'm not just looking for ET Brooks, but any cards, these could include amateurs and I'm currently aware of one notable…"

"Since making this request it has quickly turned up one other card in ET Brooks series.  Features in the photographs suggest the are from the early to mid 1860s.  I look forward to hearing from anyone else who has Newbury cards! "

Research: Stereo cards of Newbury in West Berkshire

Do you have any stereo cards of scenes in or around Newbury (Berkshire, UK)? This is a request for your help with some research I'm doing.Below is a nice example of a card by the professional Newbury Photographer E T Brooks. It was probably one of a short series of cards produced for sale to tourists. I would imagine it dates from the 1870s. This card shows the…See More

Ian Wallace commented on Gilly Read FRPS's blog post Information request: Carte-de-visite from Barnsley
"This looks like a photographer who saw how GW Wilson had success with local Personalities groups.  GWW's first was about 1856-7 after which he produced a series of at least 9 similar images. GWW numbers the portrait images so there was a…"

Ian Wallace commented on Edward McCann's blog post Exhibition of G W Wilson carte-de-visite views, 1862-1900.
"For my penny's worth I would think it is possibly by Wilson assuming you can match all the images.  He had the experience of photo montages from his commercially very successful photographs of Aberdeen dignitaries in the later 1850s. …"

"Hello Edward/Peter I think the other person who comes to mind as a comparison in this context is Francis Bedford.  Steven Evans shows a topographical CDV around 1860 on his Bedford timeline and notes that it is a cut down stereographic image…"

Publication: 'On a Hill Road' is now published

The book is a 'Now and Then' book which explores the 3D stereo archive of keen Scottish amateur photographer Andrew Milne who travelled Scotland with his Stereo Victo camera between 1902 and 1905.  Although an amateur, Andrew's image stand up well against many of the commercial images of Scotland made by more famous names.

There is a launch talk with 3D images on the…

Greetings again from Montreal, Ian -- thought I'd correct my mistake -- Helen's Island should , of course, read Ellen's Island. In fact were I'm sending this from The Atwater Library { I'm volunteer curator here of historical collections } and the volunteer in our computer room is a woman from Scotland named Ellen.

Regards, Ed

Thanks for your follow-up,Ian. Mr Wilson, I agree, is underrated.

Landscapes never much interested me -- Alex Henderson of Montreal was an exception -- until I saw a stereo of Helen's Island by GWW -- the composition made yours truly a believer in poetic landscapes. Best, Ed
