British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I have become interested in finding images of folk with stereo viewers . I had such an image in my collection for decades and have come across more recently on online sites. 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 around the world and found only this image amongst them. I had found a seller online who is sending me 7 from around the world (UK, Canada, USA).. Postage from USA is ridiculous at the moment.

I have also digital scans of two a local collector friend had in his collection from glass plate negatives.

The CDV attached is unknown subject and unknown photographer and nothing on the reverse at all. I assume from the 1860's. Not perfect with some evidence of imperfect original processing? Would welcome any thoughts and discussion.

There are a goodly number of stereo views showing people with stereoscopes.  Would be helpful to know which images you already have before locating, scanning and sending.  Here are details of two showing Gaudin (photographer) and his family.

Not sure that this qualifies but I posted this to FB this week.
