    Hi I have recently obtained a small collection of original Air Ministry Photographic Section stereocards. I have had a viewer for some time and yet nothing to view.
    I have attached 3 for your interest Essen, 13-3-43 Krupps Works, Cologne 4-7-43 and Friedrichshafen 21-6-43 Zeppelin works. I hope some of you have a viewer and are able to re-size and print off to view them in 3D.

    Good stuff. After going cross-eyed using a stereoscope in the military quite a number of times, I found one packed away in a box, and gave it to a friend. Should have kept it and viewed the pairs!

    Thank you all for the kind words. I do have another 10 stereo cards. I can post them on the forum if people are interested.
    I also have some single shots of various bombing missions. Some are quite large though.

    No problem, I hope everyone finds them as interesting as I have. The research on each picture has been fascinating. I just hope copies don't appear on ebay, that would just put other people off sharing. Pictures like these need to be seen, not just shut up in a dusty draw. Cheers!
