Amazing Vintage 3D Photos Showing Us a More Real Glimpse of Life in 1860 to 1930

In a world before radio and TV, people entertain themselves with stereographs - images taken using the Lenticular Steroscope invented in 1851 by Sir David Brewster. The invention was presented to Queen Victoria and became an instant hit during the Great Exhibition in London. Hordes of photographers were sent out to different places to document the world in Stereo Photography.
Today, with using our advance technology, blogs such as Vintage3D created animated gifs out of these stereoscopic images by editing the original photos using a specific method.
Here are some of the amazing results giving us, somehow, a more real glimpse of the industry, transportation and logistics from long time ago.
