[Photograph] London Stereoscopic and Photographic Company.

The International Exhibition of 1862. 51 [stereoscopic card]

Card 8,5 x 17 cm. Two albumen photographs with rounded upper corners, mounted to a yellow card board.

An interior from the foreign picture gallery (No. 2). The London Stereoscopic and Photographic Company was set up in 1854 in Oxford Street and remained until 1922. A stereoscopic card is used in a stereoscopic viewer which creates a three dimensional image based on the two identical photographs mounted side by side at the card. These cards were very popular during the second half of the 19th. century and well into the 20th. century. The earliest photographic stereo cards are daguerreotypes from the 1840s.
