    Had a shot at fixing the 3D image



    Not great but I got the bulk of it out, works great as a cross eye 3D picture
    OMG!!!! They had 3D cameras back then???

    Edited:

    Here's an album of the rest of the photos from this Russian collection.

    I love the surreal feeling you get from looking at these knowing they are over 100 years old.
    I thought the world was black and white 100 years ago.

    Yep. 'Tank' was a term coined to make it a lower priority target for German spies to snatch blueprints and whatnot from. "Hah, a mobile water container? Who needs that, I'll steal flamethrower designs instead"

    You don't need a 3D camera to take a 3D photo, just take one photo with your camera on a tripod, move it a bit to the side, then take another one

    Or use a special lens to split the image into two offset shots

    It's weird, but that first photo is really weird to me. Normally when you picture world war 1, you see muddy fields in the middle of buttfuck nowhere, but you never really picture ruins. Of course, I did know houses existed back then.

    And speaking of which:

    Europe is a small place, and even in 1914 France and Belgium were extremely well developed, highly populated countries. There really wasn't a "field in the middle of nowhere", if you look at trench maps the front is nearly always overlaid by railroads, canals, small hamlets, etc and most sectors had a number of villages in the rear echelons.

    Given the mass amounts of ordnance deployed on the western front ruined settlements were a given.

    I think that I'll believe my history teacher, one of the most intelligent people I know, over you, unless I can find evidence supporting your point.
    Your mindset is ridiculous.

    Here's proof that supports my less intelligent point:

    Old photos are cool as fuck. Am I the only one really, really excited at the fact that these are new never before seen pictures? Something about that is just so cool, still finding undiscovered shit from 100 years ago.
