My father (who was a bit of a "photography nut" in the days when he had
money) also owned one of these "stereo" cameras. As I recall, the make was
Stereo Realist...and the format simply paired two standard 35mm slide
images using a "dual slide" mount. They could be projected, but NOT in
3-D...and NOT by standard slide projectors.
However, the images, when properly viewed (as with ViewMaster 3D "discs"
and old double-picture "stereographs") certainly add to their impact!
We're still waiting for an image/viewer format that will allow the
display of true 3D images on existing computer monitors...!
