This one however is from London C.W has a couple with a Brewster viewer. The reverse of the cdv has J. Cooper ,Photographer , London C.W.I had thought this was from the UK London, but now believe it is again what we call Ontario, but at the time was known as Canada West.... a trap for young and old players. Ontario was so named in 1967 so I take it that my image is near the…See More

More views of the stereo world

First of all an apology to Michael Pritchard and others, this discussion should really have been here rather than the Blog, so I am continuing it here.The attached cropped images are from my collector friend's collection. They are from stereographs  of people involved with stereo in some way. I will add another image where both Ron and I are unsure. It's called "The Inquisitive Maid". It is certainly an optical object, but is it a form of Brewster viewer?No photographer nor publisher of views…See More

Attached is a cdv of a young lady standing along side a column with an album and a Brewster viewer. I sat down in an antique store last week and went through hundreds of cdv cards from…

1860s stereo images: Help to try to identify photographers

I returned to my one local antique store this week and traded some images I had for scores of English stereoviews. One is easy to identify  in terms of place as its written on the back in copperplate "Royal York Crescent, Clifton. Bristol." I wonder if this view attached could be by William Harvey Barton, who was…
