Week 220 - Loreo Stereo

Something of a novelty, the Loreo system included a viewer in which prints taken from the negatives could be viewed as stereo pairs.
There is only one shutter speed and aperture, so this really is a basic camera, although there is a flash built in, it no longer works on my example.
A stereo pair is produced on a single frame of 35mm film, this is achieved by having a series of mirrors to create the required separation between the viewpoints, as without the mirrors, the two lenses would be too close together to gain a satisfactory stereo result.
