3-D 'Motion Pictures' From The Civil War

In this article on NPR, there are images from the Smithsonian's Photographic History Collection that were originally stereographs and are animated by rapidly alternating the two images, allowing the image to appear 3-D on your computer monitor. It's an interesting effect. Not perfect, but permits viewing these images on the web, close to the way they were intended.
