thekimonogallery: This photo was taken ca.1905 by Herbert G. Ponting somewhere out in Japan’s countryside. Granny is looking through an H.C. White stereoscope at 3-D views published in the USA by the same company. Ponting carried sample views and viewers around with him to show people the kind of photos he was taking, and to make friends while putting his subjects at ease.
