Links & Web Gems: Off the Beaten Track..the Chubachus Library of Photographic History

A really cool blog from the Chubachus Library of Photographic History contains some great stereo views that have been animated. I couldn't find any other info on this blog other than...The place for the most fascinating photographs from history specializing in animating stereoscopic images. Below are some of the cool November postings.

Here are three Views of Union Soldiers Posing in Front of a Lean-to Shelter During the Civil War Near Lewinsville, Virginia (1861)
