I was down today at a friend’s antique store in Pine, and decided to grab this old Viewmaster, which I remember fondly as a kid, clicking my way through the seven wonders of the world, seeing the Grand Canyon in its tinted technicolor.

Now I need to find some discs.

Take that, Toy Boy Jim Groom, you have no monopoly on love of toys!

Perhaps this was one my early interests in multimedia.

  1. I loved the viewmaster–the picture with the gun pointed at you was very real but creepy! I also remember the discs we had with the Grimms fairy tales. Hope you can find some discs…
