An Old Stereoscope Slide

stereoscope view of turkish regimental band
Infantry regimental band with the Turkish army by Underwood & Underwood.

I was in an antique store yesterday, and picked up a few cheap, interesting old photos, including this great stereoscope slide of the Turkish army regimental band, ca. 1914-1918, from Underwood & Underwood. I've also helpfully made an annoying animated GIF version.

I don't have a stereoscope, but the slide is a nice object all on its own. There were a couple of stereoscopes in the store, but they were a little pricey.

Here the full text from the slide, it's a little hard to make out in the picture.
