What is a Stereoscope?
Stereoscopes, also known as stereopticons or stereo viewers, were one of
America's most popular forms of entertainment in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The first patented stereoscope was invented by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1838.
Wheatstone had experimented with simple stereoscopic drawings in 1832, several
years before photography was invented. Later, the two principles were combined
to form the stereoscope.
