Greetings all! We are very pleased to announce a new publication!
Easton In Stereo is a book of more than 70 images taken from our collection of stereoscopic cards. Each stereoscopic card has two similar images, and when the card is viewed through a stereoscope, a 3-D image is produced! For this project, the better of the two photos from each card was chosen to be faithfully reproduced. The images date from the very late 1860's through the 1880's and cover a range of subjects. The cover and a sample page are attached for your viewing. The cost of the book is $12 each plus shipping when applicable. You can order from our website, www.eastonmahistoricalsociety.org under "Books" in the Museum Store. Curbside pickup is available in time for your holiday giving!
Oliver Ames High School seniors Emma Lawson and Emma Varella took this project on during the summer and fall, and thanks to their hard work, the book was completed. They chose the images, did photo editing, and created the book layout. They also contributed to the text. Many thanks to Hazel Varella and Ed Hands who helped bring this project to reality!
