Naughty but Nice

 The Victorian Lady Undressed in Stereoscopic Views

Stereoscopic, or 3D photography, was popular from the 1850s to the 1930s.  In the late 19th century stereoviews, or stereograph cards, had a wide and varied subject matter. Themes ranged from scientific to picturesque, from historical to humorous, and from risqué to refined.  Displayed are images from a collection of stereograph cards by photographer William Rau that depict a "naughty" but humorous side of the late Victorian era.
