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.

We hope to see you soon!
