Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
In conjunction with the arts and crafts exhibition Making Waves, Dr Peter Blair will exhibit a selection of antique 3D images from his extensive collection of Scottish stereoscopy. The exhibition celebrates Visit Scotland's Year of Coasts and Waters and will highlight fishing, harbours, ship-building, islands, lochs, rivers and tourism. One key focus will be on Glaswegians love of taking paddle steamers from the Broomielaw down the Clyde, "doon the watter", to the resorts on the Firth of Clyde.
Stereoscopy was developed and popularised in Scotland in the mid 19th century and became a global phenomena, with 3D images the best-selling format of photograph in the late 1850s. This interactive exhibition uses a combination of modern and Victorian viewing devices to unlock the magic and beauty of these early 3D photographs.
