In addition to the manufacturing of stereo cameras and stereoscopes, Jules Richard offered a wide range of 45x107mm stereoviews with a variety of themes. An English catalog mentions more than 1.600 glass stereoviews in the 45x107mm format with the themes The Great War (1.500), Allied Peace celebrations in Paris (76) and Signature of Treaty of Peace at Versailles (28). It’s the only publisher whose exact number of stereoviews, related to the First World War, is known.
The glass slides bear the name Vérascope Richard and usually have a six-digit number and a handwritten or typed description. There are also slides with different number schemes. It looks like Vérascope Richard used house- or hired photographers during and after the war. Series of parades, ceremonies or other scenes indicate that the series were captured by a single photographer.
