***********************************

 

Long ago, I posted this image as a lantern slide HERE : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/2311125237/in/photostr...

 

I also posted it as the untransposed stereoview proof seen at the top : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/2504132479/in/set-7215...

 

This re-post of the proof, along with this first-time post of the finished, hand-colored stereoview, will let you 3-D nut-jobs (of which I am one) free-view a nice color version via the parallel method.

 

Those who can only handle free-viewing via the cross-eyed method can quickly get the proof version at the top.

 

Another reason for posting is to show the differences in (1) EXPOSURE time for printing the slide (at the link) and the stereoview version, and (2) the differences in HAND-COLORING. Both were done in T. ENAMI'S Studio in Yokohama, possibly years apart.

 

Finally, the focus is just a tad on the soft side, but that in now way detracts from the enjoyment of seeing this smiling girl when she pops into 3-D --- Enami calls her the Fairy of the Lilies in original manuscript found on the back of the b/w proof.

 

It's always interesting to see how light and shadow played out on the finished prints over the years they were made --- one by one --- for the photo-buying tourists who took these treasures back with them.

 

Ca.1898-1900. Hand colored gelatin silver print stereoview by T. ENAMI.
