Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Please have a look at my Kickstarter campaign to help fund the publication of a new book on stereoscopy - Scotland in 3D
Your support would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks Wilson - I would be interested in knowing who published/photographed your "books". The most common ones are by Underwood and Keystone but there were also ones by Stereotravel and Realistic. I have even seen a book box labelled GW Wilson, which is very rare.
I already have quite a lot of original stereoscopic cards of Scotland plus some from Egypt and other parts of the world, in three fake leather bound "books", together with an early 20th century stereoscope (made out of aluminium, which would have been very expensive in the 19th century). These belonged to my grandfather, who lived in Keith, halfway between Inverness and Aberdeen (and where I was also born). My own grandchildren love looking at them and are fascinated by the 3D aspect. I have therefore supported your Kickstarter project.
