Tremaine-Arkley-Croquet-web We’re excited to announce that the second phase of our Arkley Croquet Collection digitization project has been completed! The collection was donated to the library by Tremaine Arkley, a former player for the U.S. National Croquet Team, and we’ve been scanning paintings, illustrations, engravings, advertisements, photographs, and lots of other items depicting croquet! Here are a selection of some of our favourite (or you can check out the entire collection here, or some earlier images from the collection on Flickr). Croquet_Bay7A_0018

Croquet_Box34_0001

(Costumes de jeunes filles)

We’ve also redigitized all of the stereographs that were part of this collection, and every one of them now includes a 3D anaglyphic version of the image! Usually to see a stereograph in proper 3D you would need a special viewer, but now you can replicate the experience with simple red/blue 3D glasses. Here’s a previous blog post we did on this process. Croquet_Box8_0044
