Today we surpassed the 200 mark in phase 1 of cataloging the photographic print collections! Needless to say, we’ve seen a lot of great photographs. We’ve often come across stereographic prints while cataloging, but today we found a special stereographic print album, made to look like books in the stacks. We also found one collection that included the viewing apparatus, called a folding stereoscope. Armed with the new viewer, we were eager and curious to finally take advantage and get the full stereo effect of these prints. However, upon closer inspection, we found this particular collection consisted of rat and chick embryos. Not quite something you want to see in mono or stereo if you ask us! We may have to try out the folding stereoscope on a different collection.
