WW1 Glass Stereo photos

Recommended Posts

morrisc8

Here are a few of my ww1 photos on glass that were taken by stereo camera and sold during the end of the war, most were taken by the French and put on glass or paper.

Photo of some of my cameras of the same type used.

I will show one side of the stereo glass plate as i can show it in more detail after the first few..

Rare British stereo photo on glass taken by a army doctor of ASC  MT stores.

I have about 200 original ww1 glass stereo in my collection.

A few more and a viewer of the same make as the cameras  Jules Richard Verascope. The glass stereo slides are 45x107mm.

  French tanks.

   The last 5 were taken by the army doctor and were privately taken.

  Seen in a viewer they are in 3D.

Amazing images. Is it possible to use the cameras to take a modern day glass slide? I would imagine industrial quantities of silver salts would be required!

You can use them if you can get the roll film, he later made a roll holder for the back of the camera.

I have a film roll still in the back of one of my cameras that was left in.

So (for slow learners!) the verichrome film produced glass slides? I thought the same physical glass slide was used from exposure in the back of the camera to the end-user slide.

In the front of the photo is the stereo slides of the war, on the left unused glass film in original box, to the right a box of ww1 glass slides 3D you bought ready to see. 

above that there is the 12 glass plate magazine holder that you can replace when used, just slides in and out on the back of the camera, then at the top there is the magazine for roll film.

in one of the catalogs [1923] you could take colour plates/photos with this camera.

Thanks tim_oz , much better out in the open than in a storage box not seen by anyone.

The glass photos look much better than my scanner can show.

A few more originals from my collection.

The first photo shows a gas attack.

The verichrome film was just film and not put on glass.

The glass slide was used from exposure in the back of the camera to the end-user slide, yes and all so was left as a negative to print from.

Keith:

what is the 3D viewer called and did they make one for public shows like the “Magic Lantern “? If so, what is it called?

i have about 100 French glass stereo slides that I would like to view and also show to the public.
