Stereoview Image Library

Identifiable stereoview manufacturers existed for the primary Western Front combatants. These galleries contain scans of representative cards/slides from each of them. For those companies which provided unique image numbers (as opposed to just stamped set-sequence numbers), identification of each image is straightforward. For those lacking image numbers but stamped with sequence numbers, the images are arranged by set in set-sequence order. Others did not include either image or set numbers so these images are loosely grouped by theater of the war or image type (e.g. "Aviation).

A number of galleries are from private sources.  These were generally taken by officers using their own personal 3D cameras.  Images in these galleries are available only on this site.

Amateur (Private) Views

Loose Amateur Stereoviews - This folder contains individual private views, as well as tiny (smaller than 4) sets of slides that don't warrant consideration as cohesive collections. In all cases, it is impossible to identify the photographer. In the majority of cases, it is impossible to identify the date, location, theatre of combat, and so on, although in some cases uniforms, artillery, armor, and other contextual clues can help narrow it down. While the lack of information can be frustrating, some of these views are quite remarkable. In the future, a spreadsheet will be added as well as a page examining the slides, in order to track any information that we - or our contributors - can ascertain from the images themselves.
