Stereoscope viewcards were very popular at the turn of the century-an early attempt to create “virtual reality” from photographs.

Panama-California Exposition 1915-1916 by Keystone View Company. Most of the stereocards from the Exposition had a description on the back:

 

California Pacific Exposition 1935-36 – stereo card photos taken by Beuthel.

 

California Pacific Exposition 1935-36 – another group of stereocards with no labels.
