Like a long-forgotten photo album discovered in Grandma’s attic, these books open up to display a lost world come to life through 3-D photography. Each book will include a brief, colorful history of stereoscope photography, which started in the 1850s offering people their first photographic views of the world. This was the television or internet of the time, and millions of viewers and photos were sold by traveling door-to-door salesmen. 45 images will be reproduced, along with their reverse side including a detailed historical caption on the subject.

Take a 3D Photographic Journey into History
Like a long-lost album chock full of rare vintage photographs, this unique book with built-in viewer brings the past to life again—in 3D.
Here’s a view of the state we love from the 1860s through the 1930s: Pioneer life and Native Americans, early views of our towns and cities, famed landmarks, railroads and sailing ships, the arrival of the automobile, the glorious Ice Palace, and so much more.
These three-dimensional photographs make you feel as if you are actually there!
How to use this album: To see the stereo image, look through the built-in viewer and simply let your eyes relax, looking above or below the images. Then, slowly move your eyes to the center of the images, and the two images will reappear like magic in 3D.
