To all itmqycncern:

1 citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of Paterson, in the county of Passaic 'and- State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Material for Printing Multiple Photographs, of

' which the followin is a specification.

- My invention providesmeans for the pro duction onwhat seems to be tothe casual observer the' same surface of two hotographic views, one of whichis. perceptible to the observer looking from one an le, whereas looking from anot er angle.

the other view is erceptible' to t e observer Referring to th drawings, Fi "e1 15 a .view illustrative of the effect pro uced upon the eye of the observer .when looking at the ob ect from. one direction. Fig. 2 is illustra- .tive of the effect produced upon the eye of the observer lookin from another direction.

To secure the two s lac and alcohol or other adhesive substance insoluble in'water. The printing-paper is and the subsequent operations until printing are in. non-actinic light. Next I pass the cardboard, with the printingaper attached, as aforesaid, between two ro ers under" res;

The cardboard, with printing- 'aperattached, is placed between these re lers, so that the sensitive paper rugations. This operation leaves the paper by Figs. 3, 4, and 5. The corrugated paper so pre ared is placed in contact with ap otograp ic negative in the ordinal manner in a printing-frame. receptacle impervious to light except .for "an a erture at one side, '(illustrated byFig. 7,) t ough whichthe'rays of light approach and .meet .the corrugated printin'gaper, attacking and-p'rinting the same on y' on the toward the aperture from which the 'light comes.

One negative being then used, as above described, for printing on one side of the corrugations, while the other negative is used for printin upon the opposite si es of the corrugations, t e .same sheet will disclose two views of the object corresponding to thetwo impressions upon the retina of the; eyes. The sheet with the two photographs thereon'being'held atazproper distance from the eyes, so that'oneeye sees the photogra h only on one sideof the corrugations w e the other eye seesthe photograph only upon the other side of'the corrugations,

the usual stereoscopic effect will be produced.

What I claim as new, and desire to protect "by Letters'Patent, is

1. Photographic material prepared for printing having a surface with parallel corrugations so adapted to exposure for I printing purposes that rays of light may act only upon the sides of the corrugations facing in one direction while a second exposure will admit the light to act only upon sides of the corrugationsfacin 'in the other direction.

2.
