'Railway Bridge at Kroonstadt blown up by the Boers, South Africa', 1901

Stereoscopic photograph, Boer War, 1901.

Stereographs consist of two identical photographs paired in such a way that when seen through a special viewing instrument, a stereoscope, they appear as a three-dimensional images. By 1899 the photographs were mounted on thick card that was given a slight curvature to increase the illusion of depth. The Boer War was extensively 'stereographed' by employees of the American firm of Underwood and Underwood.

From a box of 89 stereoscopic cards entitled, 'South African War through the Stereoscope Pt 2 Vol 1', published by Underwood and Underwood and produced by Works and Sun Sculpture Studios, 1901 (c).
