Stereographs consist of two almost identical photographs typically mounted on cards with captions providing information about the image on front or back of the card. The illusion of a single three-dimensional image is created when a stereograph is viewed using a stereoscope that allows the viewer to see a single image through each eye.
Stereographs were most popular between 1870 and 1920. Collecting and viewing them was common.
