3 dimensional digital projection (anaglyph) 3D glasses will be provided

Note: Due to the special nature of this 3D presentation, this Mill Talk will not be recorded or livestreamed. This is an in-person event only.

Explore the exciting and bizarre world of days gone by, with a thrilling 3D projection by the TimeGuys of photographs locked up for over a century. No reconstructions, or AI generated fantasies here, just the realities of what hit the tabloids and made your great-grandfather smile and slap his leg!

Explore natural and manmade disasters, meet superstars of the day, and see beauties of the moment. No internet or movies - no problem! We have thrilling games of chance and risky amusements that have long been banned. See the rise of machines when they were still made of wood and steel. And enjoy the company of those whose times sizzled, including kids unencumbered by caution, adults on the make, and grizzled oldsters who have seen it all.

Using special projection techniques, TimeGuys Bernard Fishman and George Mutter are your hosts for this unique multi-dimensional tour.

Magic glasses included.

About Photoarchive3D: George Mutter and Bernard Fishman have over five decades of combined experience searching for, and studying, historic stereophotographs. The prospect of bringing these to a broad audience through digitization launched what has become a fruitful collaboration. The result is a freshly digitized archive of approximately 30,000 original stereo images covering many subjects, most of which have not been seen by the public in the last century.
