Historic Stereoscopes – in 3D no less!


We visited the Pittock Mansion in Portland, OR in early April. Coincidentally, they had a display of historic stereoscopes underway. Hah! I had to photograph these in stereoscopic 3D, of course!

Of interest, they seemed to like cat pictures a century ago too – its not just a Youtube phenomena.
