Miss Fernande was Jean Agélou's favorite model. She was probably the first pin-up in history and her photos were cherished by the soldiers in the trenches of the First World War. Today, her photos are still loved by collectors of erotic photographs.

Brentano's Great War - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

The Brentano’s bookshop in Paris was a major producer of glass stereoviews with images of the war in 45 x 107mm and 6 x 13cm format. Most of what we know about their role as producer of stereoviews is through the research of the Boyd/Jordan collection.

The Boudoir Series of Jean Agélou

The Boudoir Series of Jean Agélou - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

My first encounter with boudoir photos from the early 20th century was a coincidence. My purchase of a Taxiphote stereoscope included 74 glass stereoviews from Jules Richard's Atrium collection. I started reading about the history of erotic photography during La Belle Époque and discovered the photographs of Jean Agélou.

I found 21 glass plate negatives with stereo images of the First World War. The slides provide an interesting insight into the mobilisation of the French army during the first weeks of the conflict.

Ypres in Ruins - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

Belgium was occupied by the German army during the First World War. Only a small part of southwest Flanders remained Belgian territory and was defended by the Allied armies. The city of Ypres was close to the frontline and was surrounded by German troops. The city remained in Allied hands during the war, but the Ypres Sailant became the scene of four major battles.
