The British Museum recently made available many hundreds of thousands of images of items from their collections. Some of these are 19th century stereoscopic photographs.
I stumbled upon one of Napoléon III taken in 1858 (British Museum no. 1858,0417.1568), and wondered if I could extract any 3D data from it. Here is the result from a quick test.
I cropped the stereoscope into two separate images (which only have a resolution of 625 × 703) and processed them. If higher resolution scans were made available then higher quality geometry should be possible.
