GEISHA BY THE OLD TREE -- A Fine Spring Day in the Garden Park of Hikone, Near Kyoto in Old Japan
Circa1898-1907 original hand-tinted Stereoview by T. ENAMI of Yokohama.
A few folks think that a "Stereoview" is just two prints of the same picture placed side by side. A close look at this view will correct that notion. Looking back and forth from the LEFT print to the RIGHT print, see how many relative "positioning differences" you can see among close and far objects in the scene.
These are both completely different photographs taken with two different lenses, separated just a little more than the distance between two eyes.....but taken at the exact same moment, and, with as much skill as possible (while looking through a magnifying glass) both sides were hand-tinted to match. It still looks very nice after 110 years.
