    I had found that one. Some of the stereo views are in this folder. It is a nice site. It is too bad there aren't more sites on Jules Richard.

Jules Richard 1848 - 1930, was a French inventor. He invented a stereo camera, the Verascope in 1893. He marketed not only the camera but also stereo cards. It is thought he took many of the ones in the Atrium himself but he also employed other photographers. Jean Agelou is reputed to have worked for Richards.

He built the Atrium near his house in Paris. I am posting the Atrium photos first, because they are all fairly easy to identify. This collection includes some of the stereo cards that the larger pictures came from. Some them are identified as Richards Verascope, some have numbers and some have no markings at all. It makes it difficult to know which ones are really Richard's, which ones are in that style or which ones I got completely wrong. I will be posting albums for Exterior, Misc and Theater photos.

The quality on some of these is poor. I cropped stereo cards and then enlarged the view the best I could. If you have any more or better quality feel free to share them. I'll post some links to Richard's sites. The George Eastman House collection has a nice selection of travel scenes by Richards.
