VIictoria Terminus in 3-dimensions

Here is a stereoscopic picture of Bombay Victoria Terminus, taken in around 1903 by James Ricalton. Stereoscopic pictures are taken with a special camera which makes two exposures of a scene simultaneously with lenses separated by a distance equal to the average inter-ocular distance of the human eye, and a special type of viewer incorporating lenses or mirrors is required to fuse these images into a 3-D representation.
