Bible Study: 1870's Stereo View Card
2 Timothy 3:14-17: But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
circa 1870's: Here we have a 19th century 3D stereo view card which is titled "Bible Study". It shows a grandmother reading the Holy Bible to her daughter and grand-daughter. The photo looks "flat" on your computer screen or phone, but when it is placed into a stereoscope, the scene opens up to the eyes and it becomes 3D ... as if you are in the room with them.
The Wonders of the Bible collection has one of the largest and most unique collections of Christian based 3D imaging history science and technology. Many of the pieces are rare and scarce, many others are one of a kind in the entire world, taken by independent stereo photographers in the 19th century of Christian church groups and events.
The collection also contains 3D laser holograms, lenticulars, film strips, stereoscopes, anaglyphs, vue-master and more.
