In this year’s Remembrance post, we remember the past by looking to the future – specifically, of the Jordan/Ference Collection, the world’s largest publicly available archive of Great War stereography. See over 40 new images, and consider what they meant to the men who served.
A preview of 10 highlights from the Honorat Collection, consisting of nearly 200 examples of amateur French stereography of the Great War.
This year’s Remembrance Day post focuses on the work of Cl. Gueidan, a stereographer who sold some of his non-stereo work to the Section photographique de l’armée. He had incredible access to High Command, but also focused on Marsouins (colonial marines), hospitals, and ruins, creating some incredible works in the process.
The rarest, and today generally most expensive, VistaScreen set ever produced features The Irving Theatre, located on Irving Street in the West End. Far from what you’d think of when you think “West End Theatre”, however, the Irving was London’s first proper strip club – and it looks fantastic.
The second half of my third Remembrance Day post, a day late but with more sleep, picks up where the last one left off and remembers combatants from five further countries.
