clive_hughes Posted 28 January , 2018 Share Posted 28 January , 2018 My brother has just been given a spectroscope by a distant relative - it's a wooden (?mahogany) cabinet about 5 feet high, with viewing lenses akin to binoculars. On looking through these and turning a handle, images come up and can be seen in a sort of 3-D effect. There seem to be quite a few images (over 100), most of WW1 scenes published by the "Realistic Travels" company of London. They include for example No.129, Punjabi troops arrived from Egypt march through Lestrem; or No.177, Our Infantry storm the Wotan line near ?Queant. Other scenes are included eg. PB1100, view of Vienna. Has anyone else come across this type of viewer? It's altogether a more substantial device than the 3-D hand-held viewers I have seen in the past.
