STEREOGRAPHY TO BE EXPOSED IN PORTLAND
*History of the Stereo Card* is an exhibit opening March 5 at the
3D Center of Art and Photography, 1928 NW Lovejoy, Portland.
The field of stereography began in 1838, a year before the discovery of
photography. The first simple geometric drawings were soon replaced by
photographs and the need to be able to view them stereoscopically led to
the development and improvement of viewing devices. By the 1860s there
were over 100,000 different views available and the publishing of stereo
cards became a major business with significant competition.
This exhibition is being mounted in conjunction with an exhibition on
the history of 3D that opens March 12 at the Oregon Historical Society.
For more information, contact the center at 503.227.6667 or
