1800's Stereographs Reveal Early U.S. Christian Life in 3-D".
While most of the stereo view cards of the late 19th / early 20th century had typical "popular" culture content, there existed a small coterie of stereo photographs that went around and documented Christian living.
It is my collection of these specific stereographs that sets it apart from the rest ... including those collections held by academic institutions.
My impression is that they were passed over as a "novelty" ... and not taken as seriosuly as more traditional photographs of the period. That is a shame because, when comparing 2D photos to 3D stereographs, the stereographs just come to life.
However, the lack of interest helped me over the years, because it made them less sought after ... and, therefore, less expensive to own.

This bill is one of 4,000 pieces of paper currency released on March 9, 1754. Authorized by the colony of North Carolina. The bill includes the image of the Holy Bible in the form of what appears to be a woodcut. It is estimated that less than 500 of these bills survive today.
I took this bill with me to my last presentation and was pleasantly surprised at fascinated attendees were seeing it. I also had Biblical-based coins as well ... mixed in with my usual 3D laser holograms, microscopic scripture, lenticulars, and various other "Wonders of the Bible".
