If you’ve been waiting for a personal invitation to see the exhibit “Southern Scenery in 3D: 19th-Century Stereographic Photography,” this blog post is as close as you’re likely to come.
Due to popular interest, the exhibit has been extended — but it will be up for just a couple more weeks in the North Carolina Collection Gallery, until February 9.
Highlights include 19th-century views of the Wilmington waterfront, Linville Falls, and St. Mary’s Chapel in Raleigh; an exhibit case highlighting the evolution of stereographic viewers (including that Fisher Price Viewmaster you had as a kid); and, best of all, a 19th-century viewer you can use to look at twelve reproduction stereograph cards.
For hours, parking, and other visitor information, see the Wilson Library website.
We hope to see you soon!
