Title transparency viewer
Collection Museum of Design in Plastics: Arts University Bournemouth
Manufacturer ViewMaster
Date circa 1960-1969
Description A 3D Viewmaster circa 1960s. The ViewMaster system was invented in the late 1930s as an improved 'stereoscope', superseding the ones that had been popular at the turn of the century, as they were smaller, neater and in colour too. The ViewMaster's heydays were in the 1940s and 50s when they became very popular. A picture disc is inserted into the top of the viewer and by looking through the two eye pieces, at two slightly different images at the same time, a 3 dimensional image can be seen. This example was made in Belgium and features a Mickey Mouse image reel.
