Stereoscope Coincidence

When I was home for the Holidays, I inherited this fantastic stereoscope and a stack of roughly 50 view cards from the turn of the century. A few days later I sat down and went through all the cards.

I nearly fell off my chair, when mixed in with views of Germany, New York City, Saratoga, Yosemite, and some truly odd interior scenes - THERE WERE 2 FROM NIKKO JAPAN! I go to Japan in November, we randomly pick Nikko as a day trip, then a month later, I find these 2 random cards in the stack! spooooooky!

I'm also very happy to have the stereoscope, I love old school 3D and it fits in with my current industrial/wood obsession.

Pin It!
