The novelty is that this single sheet of paper has been slit in such a way as to allow it to be folded into the booklet of 8 pages. It was produced for an Art Trail exhibition at Conway Hall, London 4 November 2014 – 28 February 2015. The exhibition was mounted as part of the South London Women Artists Collaborative residency at Conway Hall, Red Lion Square.

Viewing stereo photographs was hugely popular just before and just after the turn of the 20th century. These cards were made for an international market, judging from the use of six languages on the reverse of the cards. In total there are 66 photograph pairs relating to Italy. These stereo pairs can be viewed in the Underwood & Underwood stereo viewer, Ref. no. N1101. These were a gift to John and Anne Davenport from Harry Carson (real name Pat Swain) who lived in Norwich.
The clever design allows it to be folded flat and sent through the post as a postcard.
