I’m collecting glass stereoviews since 2018. It started with the purchase of individual slides with images of the Battle of Verdun. My collection started to grow with the acquisition of a lot with 144 stereoviews in 6x13 format. All slides are from the same manufacturer: La Stéréoscopie Universelle, abbreviated L.S.U.

This month I looked for the first time through the lenses of my vintage Zeiss Ikon 628/8 stereoscope. I viewed an image of the Battle of Verdun and the visual experience and 3D effect made a big impression on me. A new passion was born.
