A Convoy of Wounded Soldiers on the Road to Brescia After the Battle of Solferino (1859)

Animation 1

Animation 2

Time-lapse view of a convoy of wagons bringing wounded soldiers to Brescia in the aftermath of the Battle of Solferino during the Second Italian War of Independence, 1859. The stereoscopic images were taken a short time apart, possibly around second, giving the image a slight amount of motion when animated.

The animations have slight variations in the positioning of the stereoview photographs on top of each other. The photographs to not seem to match up very well like other stereoviews in the series which might be a result of the time-lapse in their making.


Updated animation 3 (2020):
