Uploader comment: In his landmark 1856 book on 3-D photography, The Stereoscope, the optical scientist Sir David Brewster suggested:
"For the purpose of amusement, the photographer may carry us even into the realms of the supernatural. His art enables him to give a spiritual appearance to one or more of his figures, and to exhibit them as "thin air" amid the solid realities of the stereoscopic picture."
