A major exhibition at the Swiss National Museum, Landesmuseum Zürich, featured special images called stereoviews from the Swiss Center of North America’s Donald G. Tritt Archives. These stereoscopic photographs of Switzerland from 1860 to 1910 were collected by Don and donated to the Swiss Center.
October 8th, Swiss Center President, Beth Zurbuchen attended an event celebrating Stereomania Switzerland in 3D, and the release of a 184-page book Stereographic Switzerland. The book, authored by Jarryd Lowder, provides insight into the unique stereo-image collection from the Swiss Center.
Jarryd Lowder, who lives in Glarus and is a social media volunteer for the Swiss Center, saw our collection in 2017.Jarryd, knew someone who works at the Landesmuseum. From there came the exhibition and book, and increased international reach and recognition for the Swiss Center.
