London Stereo Camera
English Wood Brass Stereo Camera Circa 1880, made by the London Stereoscopic Company.
The colour of the Mahogany is a rich honey shade of brownish red. The single lens for mono work is engraved to this effect. The pair of lenses seen are not engraved, and one is slightly more worn than the other around the brass barrel, which could be accounted for by the fact that at this time stereo cameras were often used as mono cameras as well. There is a film holder, and the single engraved lens also has a set of Waterhouse stops.

Pentax Stereo Adapter
This beamsplitter converts a standard 35 mm camera lens into a steroscopic lens that puts two portrait oriented images side by side on a 35 mm. slide that can be viewed with the accompanying slide viewer. It is attached to the front of a normal lens using the filter screw thread. This model is discontinued and was replaced with a similar adapter for digital cameras which instead comes with a 4 x 6 inch print viewer.
