Stereo-kinematographic viewing apparatus, 'Wheatstone's Moving Picture Viewer'. Holding a reel of stereoscopic images of a mechanical apparatus, albumen prints.

Invented by Sir Charles Wheatstone (1802-1875), the scientist who put forward the principle of the stereoscope, this device contained a band of stereoscopic photographs, posed to simulate movement, fitted around a drum. The drum was rotated intermittently, giving the viewer an impression of movement.
