The Verdun Battlefield ∽ Past to Present

Category: Stereoviews   Tags: LSU / SDV / Verdun / WWI

My photo project about the First World War started in Verdun in 2009. Nine years later I started collecting stereoviews of the war. This created a nice interaction between these two passions. I’m now searching for stereoviews with images of locations that I've photographed during my photo project, but I also started taking new photos of locations that I recognised from stereoviews.

I've extended my collection with an interesting set of 50 glass 45x107 stereoviews and a simple stereoscope. The stereoviews are published by the Service des Ventes de l'U.N.C. (SDV).

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 LSU.
