Old Photos of Witham

A stereoscopic version of M3112 (part of Newland Street)

Taken: 1898 (said to be), Ref: M3113

A stereoscopic version of the previous photo, showing part of Newland Street (M3112). Harry Hall was very interested in this technique. It was achieved by taking the pair of almost similar photos with a special camera, which spaced them out. You can see on the photos that their sides are in slightly different places. 

Then they were shown through a special projector. The result was a three-dimensional view (3D). Harry and/or his son Gilbert went on take stereoscopic photos of the busy streets of Keighley, to which moved in about 1909.
