AN OLD PILGRIM OVERWHELMED BY A DOUBLE SCENIC WONDER -- Mt. Fuji and Shiraito Falls Seen from Omiya in Old Japan
If you want to climb down over the edge and see/hear what the falls sound like today, see this youtube video for a few moments : www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKm6lqpLV9w&feature=related
The above stereoview is part of a group of late 19th Century views of Mt. Fuji by Japan's Meiji-era master of the stereoview, T. ENAMI (1859-1929). In most of his Fuji 3-D work, he was careful to balance the majestic mountain (or even only a hint of it through the clouds) with carefully thought-out and arranged foreground material. His views of Fuji are numerous, and appear in all formats from large album views to beautifully colored lantern slides -- including lantern slides made from the stereoviews you see here.
Here's another of his classic Fuji 3-D images loved by many over 100 years ago : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/2344269069/
Various formats of his Mt. Fuji work can bee seen here, several of which were used by publishers around the world during the Meiji and Taisho eras : www.flickr.com/search/?w=24443965@N08&q=T.+Enami+Fuji...
