Stereograph

A pair of photographic images on a single support of stiff card. When viewed through a specially designed stereoscope, a stereograph gives the appearance of a single three-dimensional image. The photographs are not identical but have a slight lateral shift having been made with a dual lens camera, each photograph being what the human eye would see.
