Historical artifacts or modern technology?
In the Ulyanovsk Regional Museum of Local Lore. IA Goncharova until November 7, residents of the city can visit the exhibition “Retro-3D” from the private collection of V.N. Krugova. The author’s exposition harmoniously combines both historical motives and modern technologies, telling viewers about the stereoscope – one of the popular “fun” of the XIX-XX centuries. It already has historical value.
The device was often used by the 19th century “television”. A second wave of widespread obsession with stereoscopes swept over society in the late 1930s after the spread of reversed film. Relatively inexpensive plastic or cardboard devices allow you to see high-quality volumetric images from little-known slides.
The collection of real stereopairs of the late 19th – early 20th centuries was taken as the basis for the “Retro-3D” exposition. They, in turn, were combined into blocks on different topics, demonstrating everyday life, architecture, significant events, historical places of past years. In addition, viewers will see artifacts from past centuries at the exhibition. Visitors will also find a thematic photo zone.
Russian orchestra – the soul of Russia
