Welcome to Photoarchive3D.org

Photoarchive 3D is a digitized archive of original stereographic 19th and early 20th century historical images.  When viewed by a single person looking through a binocular stereoscope, these reconstructed a scene in three dimensions, complete with depth, creating a “Victorian virtual reality.”  Only a fraction of the millions of views produced have survived, and we here present a sampling of the broad range of available subjects including exotic locations, people of the world, historic events, and material aspects of life 100-150 years ago.
