A while ago my attention was caught by a post on Facebook sharing a number of glass stereoviews from the First World War. They were taken by a photographer who died during the infamous Battle of Verdun. I was touched by the images and decided to contact the person who posted the images.

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.
