Viewing Stereo Photographs

We were very privileged to have had the loan of a stereo 3D image viewer created by Peter Creswell. Unfortunately this is no longer in the museum but we felt it would be of interest to keep this page active. 

Stereo Photographs of Hastings Old Town

Thanks to the support of Peter Cresswell we have on loan a small collection of stereo photographs of Old Hastings and the local fishermen.

Stereoscopy

(also called stereoscopic or 3-D imaging) refers to a technique for creating or enhancing the illusion of depth in an image by presenting two offset images separately to the left and right eye of the viewer. These two-dimensional images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3-D depth.
