(animated stereo) Geisha travelling by yama kago in Meiji era japan (1901)

The purpose here is not to duplicate the original image, from Okinawa Soba's stream, but to generate an animated gif to assist viewing. Unfortunately, animation is not automatic - to animate you must view the image at original resolution (click all sizes) or simply scroll down.

 

Okinawa Soba posted several CC licensed stereoimages by T. Enami (and others) documenting life in early 20th century Japan (the Meiji period). As noted below, this view is by an unknown photographer. The original 1901 image, presented for parallel viewing and showing Geisha travelling by yama kago in Meiji era Japan, is one of many stunning stereo compositions. This animated gif version exploits motion parallax to give a stereo illusion without eyestrain, to see what the photographer envisioned.

 

Animated gif generated with StereoPhotoMaker, a freeware program by Masuji Suto & David Sykes

 

Notes on gif generation: The stereogram images were registered on the face of the left porter. Left image was rotated -1.5 degrees; Left image was scaled to 99.5% of original.
