‘Charles Dickens and his World in the Stereoscope’: Free Online 3-D Talk

To accompany the exhibition To Be Read At Dusk: Dickens, Ghosts & the Supernatural currently held at the Charles Dickens Museum, photo historian Denis Pellerin, from the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy, will give an online 3-D talk, at 4.00 p.m. (GMT) on Wednesday November 2nd 2022.

Join Denis on a journey through the London of Charles Dickens with over a hundred stereo photographs, most of them from the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy. Discover some of Dickens’s immortal characters – including the ghost of Jacob Marley, Mr. Pickwick, Little Nell and others – meet some picturesque figures he could have included in his novels and see the great man himself, in glorious 3-D. Three never-seen-before stereoscopic portraits of Dickens will be shown during this forty-minute talk, which will be followed by Q&A. 

The event is free on Zoom, but you will need to register for a link. Please see the Dickens Museum website for details. Please note that the Dickens Museum will be sending the links out about an hour before the talk starts.

All the images will be shown in the side-by-side parallel-view 3-D format (like Victorian stereo cards). If need any help with viewing these in 3-D, please see this post.

If you cannot attend the talk, you can also visit the exhibition at the Dickens Museum, including a digital stereoscope, until March 2023. For details, please see this post.
