Today is the 100th Anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo.  This is a Keystone Stereo View of Sarajevo, from the Keystone View Company’s “The World War” set, probably from the 1920’s.

Interesting side note:  The Keystone View Company used a picture of the wrong bridge! This is not the Latin Bridge, near where the assassination took place. This is the Seher-Cehaja Bridge, about half a kilometer upriver. This photo is also facing south, while the assassination took place on the north side of the river.
