sources on stereographs in Qajar photography?
I came across this image in Ali Khan album, had never seen a Qajar stereograph. am curious about other stereographs from Qajar Iran. any suggestions would be most welcome.

A few French stereographs depicting Iran are shown here (with basically no information): http://shahrefarang.com/en/stereoscopic-images-iran/#comment-7548

Thanks for this link Mira. I wonder, given relatively large number of these, if anyone has done any work with them. ShahreFarang gives no information on the provenance of these images.

I know, ShahreFarang rarely cites a provenance!! It's quite annoying. Apparently there are also some stereographs at the archive in London! I hope to hear more (see them!) this summer.

The Akskhaneh seems to have a couple of stereograph cameras and viewers, which also points to a circulation of stereographs in Iran: http://www.iranphotomuseum.com/sn/collectionGalleries/pt/full/lang/en/id/769/galleryId/62
