For ABC Wednesday, D is for Dina in 3-D glasses.
Dozens of glasses wait for visitors and pupils who come to the Open Museum in Omer.
You can't see them properly, of course, but here are some examples of the big three-dimensional photographs taken in Eretz Israel in the late 19th century.
Here above is Jerusalem's Jaffa Gate when it still had the Ottoman clock tower just outside the Old City wall (the tower was soon torn down by the British in 1922).
This is labeled "Ancient Fountain of the Virgin, Nazareth, Palestine."
It was fascinating to gaze at these pictures; I felt like I was really "in" the scene, mingling with the women and children.
"Tiberias, a town of Jewish fisherman, Sea of Galilee"
Please click on the photo and then once again.
You can read how stereographs were made and how American publishing house Underwood and Underwood produced and sold the set about Eretz Israel in 1900, focusing mostly on the Christian market.
