1970s TV Action and SciFi ViewMaster film reels Vintage VR

Back in the days of old Earth Viewmaster film slide viewers were the high tech Virtual Reality of the day. Slides with incredibly clear colourful images allowed snarling fur covered stone-age kids to see their heroes in stunning three dimensional action. Many contemporary favourites were in the Viewmaster catalogue, not only fishy stories about Flipper or epic neverending wild west adventures with the Cartwrights… but also real life superheroes like Batman and futuristic space shenanigans starring Colonel B B B Buck

The ability to take, produce and view 3 dimensional photo images originated almost a century ago in the 1930s. The first View-Master slides and the “Model A” viewer became commercially available in 1938

View-Master Model A was produced between 1938 and 1944

View-Master “Model A” was produced between 1938 and 1944 and was very popular with the US Military Forces for mapping and aircraft identification

The classic View-Master we all know and love was the “Model J” (see Batman picture below), it was produced for almost 20 years – 1975 right up to 1994. You can read extensive View-Master history at the 20th Century Stereo Viewers site
