Hand-Held Stereoviewer

3D was available as early as the 1860s thanks to the stereoview camera. The camera itself was an expensive apparatus, but many local photographic studios owned stereoview processing equipment and sold stereoviews and hand-held viewers.

The Hand-Held Stereoviewer was a cheap apparatus, and so became popular with the public.
