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.

Glass plate negatives from The Great War - Black & White Photography and Stereoscopy Blog

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.

The vast majority of images from the First World War are black and white photos, but original images in color exist. They were made by using the autochrome process developed by the French Lumière brothers.
