Introduction

This website contains potted histories of the principal 19th century photographers of the Chamonix Mont Blanc region and an assortment of their stereoviews and other photographs from the collection of Peter Blair.

Peter has now helped curate two 3D exhibitions in the Chamonix valley. An interview with Swiss TV RTS “Passe-moi les jumelles”can be watched here TV Interview.

Peter has also published two books on his collection:

Chamonix Mont Blanc in 3D – a journey through the stereoscope from the 1850s to today – this is a fun and informative, high quality, coffee-table-style book that all lovers of the mountains will enjoy. It contains over 200 side-by-side stereoviews of the Alps and a free fold-out 3D viewer to immerse yourself in a bygone era.

William England – Views of Switzerland – a collector’s catalogue is a more  scholarly work which provides an invaluable research aid to collectors of early stereoviews.
