Description:

Ten Stereo Autochromes, 2 1/4 x 5-inch, of European scenes, with black paper-taped edges and date, time, location and exposure time recorded in French on the reverse of each slide.Note: The earliest date is June 1930 (Montromant, Rhone), the latest (Heiligenblut, Autriche) August 1936. The subject matter, quality and the detailed notes, as well as the Lyon location (Palais de la Foire) of one image, raise the possibility that the slides may be the work of a member of the Lumiere family.
