Japanese Stereoviews

In the late 19th and early 20th century, enigmatic photographer T. Enami (1859-1929) captured a number of 3D stereoviews depicting life in Meiji-period Japan.
Check out these stereoviews from turn-of-the-century Japan that have been turned into animated gifs. The choppiness kinda gets on my nerves, but the hand-painted colors are so beautiful and intricate like in this photo of a brass ornaments merchant, or the portrait of Sumo wrestlers.
