While visiting an estate in the Niagara Falls two years ago, Chris Hughes, from A Nerd’s World, stumbled across and purchased a rare World War I Richard Verascope stereo camera that was onced owned by the French Army.

The camera was in pristine condition and even contained glass slides that were exposed during World War I.

Hughes said, "Each slide is a piece of history in photographic form and I get shivers every time I place a glass slide into the 3D stereo viewer."

Scroll down to view Hughes’ digital 3D renderings of the glass slides or visit A Nerd’s World for more photos.
