"View-Master is the trademark name of a line of special-format stereoscopes and corresponding View-Master "reels", which are thin cardboard disks containing seven stereoscopic 3-D pairs of small transparent color photographs on film. It was manufactured and sold by Sawyer's.
The View-Master system was introduced in 1939, four years after the advent of Kodachrome color film made the use of small high-quality photographic color images practical. Tourist attraction and travel views predominated in View-Master's early lists of available reels, most of which were meant to be interesting to users of all ages. Most current View-Master reels are intended for children.
This is a Classic Reel bakelite View Master (1946-1956). This 3-D dimension viewer has divided box with a demo reel and some original advertising. It was manufactured by Sawyer's in Portland Oregon, USA. There is no damage to the view master. The box shows some wear. The nostalgic viewer has been tested and works as it should.
