Do you remember staring at those Magic Eye pictures, hoping to see an image revealed once your eyes reached that perfect blur? Well that magical phenomenon of stereographs was created long before the 1990′s craze, dating back as far as the 1840′s. Double lensed stereoscopic cameras allowed people to capture 2 moments at once and stereoscopes made the prints come to life as they appeared to pop off the page in 3D.

A famous photographer in Japan in the late 1800s named T. Enami created many stereoscopic photographs from the time. Transforming Enami’s photos into GIFS, Okinawa Soba provides us with a glimpse into 19th century Japan and we don’t even need to put our noses up to the screen and slowly move back to see them! Check out more page popping 3D images of old Japan on Okinawa Soba’s Flickr page.
