What a View!

Nantucket Through the Stereoscope

Stereographs, an early form of three-dimensional photographs, were a major vehicle for popular education and entertainment in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Displaying highlights from the NHA’s collection of over 700 stereographs, this exhibition explores both traditional and modern viewing techniques of this early 3D technology.

The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences.
