Putting some colour in the Treaty Stone

This stereo-view of the Treaty Stone was produced by the largest producers of stereo-views in the world Underwood & Underwood Publishers. They produced stereo-views from 1882 until 1920 this image in Limerick was taken about 1900. These slides were placed into a viewer and held over the eyes, the slight variation of each image would give the illusion of a 3D image. The image below is an iconic view of the Treaty Stone with Limerick Castle behind.
