DescriptionStereocards / stereographs. 29 stereocards with black and white images from World War I. There is an explanation on the back of each card. In those days, newspapers did not print many pictures and there were no movies with newsreels, so stereocards were the best way to "see" the world. These were made by Keystone View Company.
Stereographs are dual images meant to be viewed through a stereoscope. The images are slightly different from each other, and when seen through a viewer, produce a three dimensional effect.
