All the images on this page have been converted from the original Victorian Stereoview Images on the other pages of the site. Any pair of blue and red lensed 3D glasses can be used to view the images below. Click on them to enlarge to a reasonable size and allow a few seconds for your eyes to adjust. Poundland normally carry cardboard pairs in their children's stationery section (as part of a 3D drawing set) or you can buy them online from us by clicking on the adjacent button....
What Are Anaglyphs?
"Anaglyph 3D is the name given to the stereoscopic 3D effect achieved by means of encoding each eye's image using filters of different (usually chromatically opposite) colors, typically red and cyan. Anaglyph 3D images contain two differently filtered colored images, one for each eye. When viewed through the "color-coded" "anaglyph glasses", each of the two images reaches one eye, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain fuses this into perception of a three dimensional scene or composition.
The first method to produce anaglyph images was developed in 1852 by Wilhelm Rollmann in Leipzig, Germany.
In historical methods using camera filters, on film, two images from the perspective of the left and right eyes were projected or printed together as a single image, one side through a red filter and the other side through a contrasting color such as blue orgreen or mixed cyan."
