Event description

Description

Between 1857 and 1860 the Oxford firm Spiers and Son commissioned famous photographers to document Oxford in 3D with a cutting-edge optical instrument, the Stereoscope. In this talk, using original negatives from the Bodleian Libraries' archives and positive prints from Dr Brian May’s collection, photo historian Denis Pellerin takes you back in time through Oxford’s streets. Visit Oxford ‘in depth’ as it was then, meet one of the very first photo bombers, and discover the city of ‘Spiers’ as you’ve never seen it before.

This event is unticketed, but it helps us monitor interest if you register here.
