"The City Quakes: The San Francisco Earthquakes of 1906 & 1989” by Robert Bloomberg
The San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906 was the worst national disaster in American history and the first to spark a world-wide media frenzy. Stereo card companies produced scores of 3D cards which brought the devastation into living rooms around the globe. This show includes photos never before seen in 3D, as well as dramatic images of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

“Unseen Ellis Island” by Sheldon Aronowitz and Gary Schacker
Unknown to most is that the activities of Ellis Island were documented in 3D and printed as a collection of stereocards.
“Unseen Ellis Island” combines these rare images with a new series of 3D photographs by Sheldon Aronowitz and Gary Schacker who, after years of red tape, were allowed access to Islands 2 & 3 which have never been restored.

"History of the Stereo Card" organized by the 3D Center
