Victorian Warwickshire
through the eyes of a Stereo Photographer.
 An audio visual presentation
by Dr Bob Pryce.

“The Warwickshire County Record Office has a large collection of over 600 Warwickshire related stereo cards which are largely Victoria and date from the 1850s.  Dr Bob Pryce and his wife, Jane, have digitised all of these 3D, stereo pair images and the photographs are being restored as far as possible.   
With the old and new photographs of Warwickshire past and present,  some stereo images of Berkswell (1917-1920) will be presented for discussion.”
