Stereoscopic photograph, In the firing line at Passchendaele, we repulse repeated Bosche counter attacks of great violence, nd. From a collection of one hundred and one stereoscopic photographs in box one of two entitled ‘The Great War’ including the official series. With stereoscopic viewer. Associated with World War One, Western Front (1914-1918). Stereographs consist of two identical photographs paired in such a way that when seen through a special viewing instrument, a stereoscope, they appear as a three-dimensional images. By 1899 the photographs were mounted on thick card that was given a slight curvature to increase the illusion of depth.
