It seems that the camera has remained in storage ever since.

    Anton runs a rental darkroom facility here in San Diego called Rollov Film Center, and recently converted a school bus as a mobile darkroom facility to tour the country and spread the word about analog photography.
    Something's wrong - actually a couple things are wrong. Those aren't stereo plates. The aircraft dates from probably the last year or two of WWI, so less than 100yrs. The bomb is late-ish, too.

    i think the photographs were stuck in the camera for safe keeping
    and the seller had no idea there were prints stored in his stereo camera ( Bellini Jumelle )
    when he opened it it showed only one side exposing ...
    there is a probably a plate he can remove to make it full-stereo

    nice find

    There's at least one set of stereo images, but it appears that the rest are just individual plate negatives. A quick Google search on this camera indicates that it used 24 half-size plates to obtain 12 stereo images, via a rather complex mechanism to cycle the exposed/unexposed plates inside the magazine.

    Don't know about the age of the aircraft and bomb, but a number of media outlets have incorrectly reported these images as being over 100 years old, when the negatives could have been made as late as 1918, or even a few years immediately after the war.

    Yes, I doubt they're aware that WWI was fought from August 1914 to November 1918. Add the media penchant for hyperbolic manure and this is what you get.
