Édition Paris-Stéréo was a trademark of Albert Baron. The company was a publisher and seller of stereoviews, located at Boulevard Lefebvre 55 in Paris. It published a limited range of glass stereoviews, but it’s mainly known for its paper card stereoviews with scenes of the war. A post-war catalog contains a list with all published stereoviews. Most series are not dedicated to a specific theme or battle and remarkably, it had no images of the battle of Verdun. The stereoviews are technically of high quality, but many of the images were published during the war and were subject to censorship. These are not the most interesting images.
Paris-Stéréo produced ten series of 12 paper card stereoviews in the format 8,5 x 17cm during the war. After the war, the range was expanded to twenty series. The paper card stereoviews were packed in purple boxes. The glass stereoviews with the same image carry the same number and title as the paper cards.
