London Stereoscopic Company

The origins of the London Stereoscopic Company date back to the 1850s when it started selling stereo views and viewers to the public, and led the boom of stereo photographs of every conceivable subject. These images, viewed through a stereoscope, presented scenes in life-like three dimensions; in a world which had never experienced television, the movies, or the Internet, this was understandably a revelation. After the initial boom the company diversified but struggled and sadly dissolved in 1922.

Brian May of Queen bought the company, and since 2008 has brought it back to life through a series of beautifully produced books with stereo photographs which can be viewed with the the famous OWL stereoscope, designed by him. All the books are in 3-D, but the subjects covered range widely in subject matter from fashion to the space race, and in time from the Victorian period to the present day, and include the celebrated bestseller Queen in 3-D, written and photographed by Brian May.
