British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I'm looking for help with identifying the stereo camera technology in use in the first of these images. The picture shows Belgian photographer and ecologist Jean Massart in 1911. Not a great image I know, but all I have to go on.

The stereo pictures produced by Massart's camera are of the format shown in the second image. The print measures c.3.5 inches x 4.75 inches and seems to be a non-standard geometry for stereos, with its rectangular, portrait-format images, separated by quite a large gap.

Can anyone help?

Hi Damien, Looks a bit like a stereo ICA, I'll have to find mine and compare. But I have a French stereo camera from the 1890's which would make prints of a similar size, but that's in wood and brass and this camera looks more like a metal one.

Will research a bit and get back to you, if I find anything
