:: Discover Japan in the early 20th century in 3D ::
Those are amazing pictures of japan taken from 1895 to 1910 by Japanese photographer T enami (1859–1929)(wiki), they were hand colored and sold as stereocards: basically you have two slightly different images when you look at them each one of your eyes sees a different image and it looks like they are in 3D and that effect can be reproduced with gifs nowadays (more).
So to resume, pictures by T Enami. They were put on flickr by Okinawa Soba and "animated" by Pink tentacle
