Jim Bergstrom Collection of World War I Aviation Stereographs

Description

The Jim Bergstrom Collection of World War Aviation Stereographs contains five (5) stereograph images of World War I scenes. The stereographs were published by the Keystone View Company and photographs were taken from approximately 1914-1919.

This collection includes three cards featuring images of airships (balloons and zeppelins) and two cards featuring images of Nieuport planes. Each stereo card features a double photograph in black and white, an image number, and brief caption on the bottom right of the card. Also included is publication information from Keystone. The reverse of each card features the image number, a title, and an extended historical narrative to contextualize the image.

One stereograph (#18632, "French Troops Inspecting a Wrecked Zeppelin") is duplicated in the the Mark Winters Stereograph Collection and has not been digitized.
