Found this amazing set on Pinktentacle. In the late 19th and early 20th century, enigmatic photographer T. Enami (1859-1929) captured a number of 3D stereoviews depicting life in Meiji-period Japan. These are my two favourites. I particularly like the fact they've been hand printed and stuff. Love the old 3D-ness. Imagine the old Shogun-types wandering around with their eyes glued to the stereoviews - maybe a bit like us sending texts via iPhone and stuff. But in Japan. And without electricity.
"A stereoview consists of a pair of nearly identical images that appear three-dimensional when viewed through a stereoscope, because each eye sees a slightly different image. This illusion of depth can also be recreated with animated GIFs like the ones here, which were created from Flickr images posted by Okinawa Soba."
