A. Historical Introduction

TEST ONLYStereographs were invented not long after photography itself came into being in the 1840s. The idea was to present the viewer of the stereographs with three-dimensional views of the world. In a time when photographs were just becoming common, stereoscopes added a dimension---well, two dimensions---to the experience. The stereoscope died off when motion pictures gave an even more realistic view of the world, but without the 3-D effect. Have a question? Get an answer from online tech support now!
