Julien Damoy, Provision Merchant and Publisher of Stereoscopic Postcards

We welcome back to the Stereoscopy Blog photo historian Denis Pellerin. In this post he devotes his incredible and thorough research to French provision merchant and publisher of stereoscopic postcards Julien Damoy.

Denis has once again dug deep in his research (and spent a fortune on postcards!) to rediscover Damoy.
