I have found a set of old stereo photos of Egypt.  There is not much commentary other than they are said to be 19th century.  There are pictures of the pyramids but there are also pictures of places like Luxor Temple, Deir el-Bahri and the Valley of the Kings.

Hi Kate

These appear to be from Egypt through the stereoscope, on the web by Rice University.

Excellent post. I love the pre- 20th Century photos of Egypt before many of the excavations have taken place and before the banning of photos in certain sites (couldn't resist that little dig).

Flickr is a great resource. No matter how often i go there i come accross new and amazing pics.

Thanks for this Kate

These are a great find Kate! I love these old stereoscopic shots, sort of like Steampunk Hi Def 3D.

I scanned most of these from my extensive collection of stereoviews, plus a few copied from E-Bay stereoview auctions. Enjoy.

Another great Flickr source of old photos is the Brooklyn Museum's commons section of lantern slides.
