Horror of the First World War revealed in amazing collection of '3D' stereoscopic images found in an attic after decades

Περιμένετε λίγο να τις φορτώσει τις φωτογραφίες...
A Toronto photography studio has stumbled across a stereoscopic camera, and its photographic slides, that captured scenes of World War I in 3D.
The photographs were taken in the trenches, streets, and battlefields of World War I.
The striking images, acquired using a handheld stereoscopic camera called the Verascope and were captured by soldiers in the French army.
When the camera was acquired it was still in pristine condition and included the original leather carrying case and glass slides.
Each slide is a piece of history in photographic form and show scenes from the trenches, streets, and battlefields of World War I.
Visitors to A Nerd's World in Toronto can use a special 3D viewer to see the slides for themselves but with kind permission we are able to bring you the stunning images.
